Who's Up For 2017?

The glitterball hasen't even been raised by one of our finalists yet, and the press are already speculating about who might take part in 2017!

Danny Mac's fiancée, Hollyoaks acress Carley Stenson, is reportedly keen to take part, having spent time cheering Danny on this series. 

A source told The Sun“Both parties [Carley and producers] have arranged to speak in the new year about making her desire to follow Danny’s sensational footsteps in this year’s series.”

Multiple gold-winning Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds is also reportedly on the BBC's hitlist. The Daily Mirror reports that she was invited to the semi-final last week, and appeared on It Takes Two, to see how things are done. 

A source told the paper: “They wanted to introduce her to the Strictly family and to get a feel for the place and the programme. By all accounts she had a fabulous time. It’s early days, but we would love her next year. She is our number one choice by a country mile.”

And they are reportedly not concerned about her 4'1" height, since Claudia Fragapane is only 4'7" and did just fine dancing with AJ who was much taller.
