Louis Theroux

Documentary maker Louis teased an appearance on the BBC show last year and hinted he could be on the show this year. he confessed:

I know I've had too many drinks when I'm in the kitchen dancing while listening to something on the smart speaker, often hip-hop, and I start doing the funky robot and then I start doing MC Hammer spins. And that's where it happens and I start thinking I should really go on Strictly.

Alan Carr

Funny man Alan has teased he's been asked to take part in the past. Reportedly, he gets asked to do Strictly ‘every year.’

Perri Kiely

The Diversity star expressed he would love to take part in the show. He said:

If it was on a technical level, that would be horrendous, so I'd definitely love to give it a go.

Tom Malone Jr

Gogglebox star Tom left the Channel 4 show in 2021 but has expressed his interest in Strictly. He labelled his professional stint as ‘interesting.’

Tommy Fury

After conquering the boxing ring, the Love Island star - who is also releasing his first book - is expected to take over the dance floor this year. Tommy has become a fan favourite to be on the show.
