The Strictly Come Dancing rumour mill is going into overdrive with all sorts of names being thrown at us.

Greg James - BBC Radio 1 presenter

Alan Hansen – Football pundit

A source told The Sun “The feeling is that a deal can be done. He would be a brilliant signing for Strictly. The fact that he is known for his forthright views is a bonus.”

Mark Wright Strictly Come Dancing

The Only Way is Essex and almost King of the Jungle Mark Wright has reportedly signed up for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

His bride to be Michelle Keegan turned it down apparently!

A source reportedly said ”Having a couple going head-to-head would have made great TV, but we are delighted to have Mark. Bosses are confident he can win over their audience given his success winning I’m A Celebrity.’

He was asked by new! magazine about the possibility of sharing the screen with Michelle, he said: ‘I’m doing my thing and Michelle’s doing hers.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman Strictly Come Dancing

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will present Strictly Come Dancing, the BBC announced today, putting weeks of frenzied speculation to rest.

So no Anton, no Barrowman and no Norton. Not even a Corbett!

I can’t say that Claude was my number one choice, or my tenth – what do you think?

I really wanted the BBC to surprise me with a presenter I hadn’t even thought of. Something to mix it up a bit and to make it feel fresh.

I count myself as a feminist (although it’s a dirty word these days; no I don’t burn my bras or refuse to walk through a door if a man opens it, yes I do expect equal pay), but I for one am not going to make out that the ‘forward thinking’ Beeb have made a revolutionary decision to have a…wait for it…ALL WOMAN LINE UP!!!

Are they just using this an an antidote to the spate of sexism rows over the past few years? See, we’re not sexist, we’ve got  an All Woman Line-up.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s not that I think all All Woman Line-ups don’t work, I just don’t think this all woman line up works. It’s a personal preference I suppose and I’m sure there are loads of you who are happy with the choice – and I’m happy for you! I just think they’re a bit..daft.

I had my heart set on a few others. Sob.

As soon as the dancing starts I’ll forget all about it. Probably.

Bruce and Tess Strictly Come Dancing

The news is true! The BBC has confirmed that Sir Bruce Forsyth has quit Strictly Come Dancing after 10 years and 11 series!

Many of us never thought we’d see the day that Brucie would quit Strictly – although I know many of you were fed up of him fluffing his lines and mumbling through the autocue. Not me though!
