Strictly Come Dancing is a highlight in the TV calendar which many are once again looking forward to. The BBC One reality series hasn’t confirmed when it will be back but it is expected to return in the second half of 2021. So who could be on their way to picking up the Glitter Ball trophy this time around? Express.co.uk has rounded up some of the celebrities who have been rumoured for the show.
Who is predicted for the Strictly Come Dancing 2021 line-up?
Actor Gregory Piper has been on TV since he was a youngster but viewers may have only started to recognise him in the past few years.
He portrayed Ryan Pilkington in both seasons five and six of the hit BBC One drama Line of Duty.
Piper starred in the first-ever series of Line of Duty, acting as a messenger boy for the OCG (Organised Crime Group) and even tried to cut off DI Steve Arnott’s (Martin Compston) fingers with a pair of boltcutters.
So how will the actor behind the violent criminal get on if he did take to the dance floor?
Loose Women panellist and TV personality Stacey Solomon isn’t a stranger to reality shows.
She came in third place in 2009 when she starred on The X Factor and won the title of Queen of the Jungle when she appeared on I’m A Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! the following year.
Solomon is now engaged to actor Joe Swash who also the ITV reality series back in 2008.
There are now rumours she may be interested in learning everything there is to know about ballroom and Latin.
Alex Beresford is best known for presenting on ITV show Good Morning Britain.
He was recently involved in the drama surrounding fellow presenter Piers Morgan’s exit from the breakfast series.
Morgan had dismissed Meghan Markle’s talk of mental health issues and contemplation of suicide which Beresford then called him out on live on air.
As Morgan walked off, Beresford labelled it “diabolical behaviour”.

Someone who has helped to keep the nation moving throughout the coronavirus pandemic has been Joe Wicks.
Also known as The Body Coach, Wicks made it his mission during lockdown to hold weekly online exercise classes to ensure everyone stayed active even when they were forced to be at home.
Through his YouTube channel, Wicks was able to raise £580,000 for the NHS.
He was rewarded for his efforts last year when he was made an MBE in the Queen’s birthday honours list.
Gogglebox star Tom Mallone could also be preparing for his time in the Strictly spotlight.
Mallone is a professional breakdancer but he has previously said he would want to see if he could take on an entirely different form of dancing as well.
He said: “If the opportunity came up to go on Strictly as a contestant, I’ve never done ballroom in my life, so it’d be interesting to see how as someone who breaks, I’m used to dancing upside down, how those two worlds could come together.”
Strictly Come Dancing will return later this year.
