While the BBC is yet to confirm who will definitely be taking part in this year’s Strictly, speculation is rife as to who will take part.

Job: Radio DJ and TV presenter

One celebrity who hasn’t shied away from the suggestion of taking part in Strictly Come Dancing is Jordan North. The radio DJ was asked on Katie Piper’s Breakfast Show if he would ever do the show, to which he replied: “Never say never, that is my motto.”

He added: “I did I’m a Celebrity… four years ago now and that was mainly because my mum wanted a new kitchen!”

As he began joking with Piper and fellow guest Craig Revel Horwood, North said: “No I haven’t signed anything… yet.”

It was reported back in January that the actress was looking to “boost” her profile in the UK.

A source claimed to The Sun: “She’s an accomplished actress, has the right look and appearing on the show would attract a huge amount of positive promotion.”

It wouldn’t be a Strictly Come Dancing line-up without a soap star!

Fresh off the heels of her EastEnders exit, Shona McGarty is reportedly “in talks” to take part in this year’s show.

A source told The Mirror that she has been approached before but the timing would be better now.

While this is no confirmation at all, Strictly pro Nadiya Bychkova revealed last month that Princess Anne is a big fan of the dancing show.

“She is a Strictly fan and she wants to go on the show – she told me,” the dancer told The Sun. “I think she would be good – there’s a lot of personality there, isn’t there?”

Gladiator star Nitro made an appearance on last year’s Strictly Come Dancing competition, but this time he is apparently in talks for a spot on the line-up.

According to The Sun, show bosses think it’s “a great idea to cross-pollinate entertainment shows”.

Strictly Come Dancing will return later in 2024.
