Stacey Solomon is in demand this year and could be the next Loose Women star to sign up for Strictly Come Dancing.

The mum-of-three, who has proven extremely popular on the ITV daytime show thanks to her legion of fans, is reportedly a favourite to be on the 2020 series of the BBC dancing competition.

If she is approached by the Beeb she would be following in the dancing steps of fellow Loose Women host Ruth Langsford, who appeared on the show in the 2017 series.

According to bookies Coral, Stacey, 30, has odds of 1/2 placed on her joining the show after her other half Joe Swash stormed to victory on ITV's Dancing On Ice.

It's not the first time Strictly has come up, with Stacey speaking about her love for the show in a recent interview.

But she's not quite convinced she'd do so well: "I love the show, I love the outfits, the routines, and how the contestants go from one to 1,000.

"But I would be the one that didn't get it… Everybody would expect me to go on this journey, but I would be persistently the same after 10 weeks! I would just stay the same!" the former X Factor star told Good Housekeeping.

If this year's series can go ahead Stacey would no doubt be a huge hit, and will join another favourite for the show, Michelle Keegan.

Any pre-production prep for the 2020 series, which usually kicks off in September, has been halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Strictly professionals have been unable to practise any group routines together, as rehearsals usually begin in the early summer before going on to meet the celebrity contestants.

According to reports the BBC are still making plans to go ahead with the dancing competition with insiders confirming that the 2020 series will be bigger than ever.

A source told the Sun Online that actually the outbreak of COVID-19 has meant that many famous faces now have a free calendar due to work cancellations.

"The thing is – because of the lockdown, a lot of celebs are having films, TV shows, tours and theatre bookings cancelled and Strictly is likely to go ahead – it’s a big payday and a huge, prestigious show.

"When packed schedules might have stood in the way before, now a lot of stars' calendars have opened right up."

After quitting her role as Georgie Lane in the channel's Our Girl, it's believed that Michelle Keegan is another favourite to take part in the dancing competition and has been made "number one target".

The 32 year old actress would follow in the ballroom shoes of her husband Mark Wright who stormed to the final back in 2014 but lost out to late TV presenter Caroline Flack.

According to a source the BBC are keen to sign up Michelle, who has recently left Our Girl and is thought to be looking for her next big project.
