But which celebs will be in the line-up hoping to impress the judges and win the glitter ball trophy? Here's everything you need to know.

Who is rumoured to be in the line up of Strictly 2019?

While it may seem as though the last series of Strictly only just finished, there are already rumours about who will taking part in the 2019 series…

Huw Edwards

Last year Huw — who has shed 3st — was as a VIP guest on the hit dance show.

Now BBC bosses have asked him to join DJ Chris Evans and comic Alan Carr and compete later this year.

“And I think the answer is, Steve, I’ve come here today for some advice. Despite all appearances, I am quite shy.”

Watch this space.

Alan Carr

Alan Carr was reportedly the first celeb to be offered a spot on next year's series. 

A source said: “Alan has met with the bosses and they all hit it off straight away.

“He’s a perfect celebrity for Strictly because he’s popular, funny and throws himself into everything — but has never had a day’s dance training in his life.

"What’s certain is he won’t hold back.”

Chris Evans


Radio 2 host Chris Evans also claimed that his colleague Fearne Cotton was “teetering on the brink” of saying yes to appearing on the show.

He added: "It will ultimately be a huge, massive sequin-covered yes."

Louis Theroux

Louis Theroux sparked speculation that he's up for Strictly when he congratulated 2018 winner Stacey Dooley by tweeting "Congrats @StaceyDooley ! Me next (JK)."

Fans of the documentary maker were quick to pledge their support with one posting, "PETITION FOR THIS TO BE A THING."

When does Strictly 2019 start?

An exact date has not yet been confirmed for the start of Strictly 2019 but it's likely to kick off in September.

In 2018 the line-up was revealed at the end of August with the launch show on September 8.

This year the competition was won by journalist Stacey Dooley and her pro dance partner Kevin Clifton.

She will feature in the live tour along with other stars from the series including Ashley Roberts, Joe Sugg and Faye Tozer.
