Another year, another 15 contestants are set to cha-cha-cha their way across the dance floor for a sequin-encrusted season of Strictly Come Dancing.


Stacey Dooley and Kevin Clifton were crowned the champions of 2018 – but who will be battling it out in the ballroom in 2019?

Meet all the rumoured and confirmed contestants, below…

Lucy Fallon


Coronation Street star Lucy Fallon could be swapping the Cobbles for the Strictly dance floor after pro dancer AJ Pritchard revealed the actress is top of his list of celebrities he’d like to be partnered up with.

He told the Daily Star: “I think partners for myself – one that looks really good, correct height, has to go off height because I’m a small guy, it’s simple – Lucy Fallon.

“She’s a great partner, she’s the right height. I saw her at a party, she can move – that’s always a help.”

Fallon announced in May 2019 that she was leaving Corrie, meaning that her way is potentially clear to compete in Strictly later this Autumn.

Sunday Brunch’s Tim Lovejoy might be following in his co-host Simon Rimmer’s footsteps and joining the Strictly line-up.

On Chris Evans’ Virgin Radio Breakfast Show, Rimmer joked: “Tim’s going to do it this year.”

Lovejoy then replied “Done deal”, before quickly adding: “I haven’t been offered it, so I don’t know… But, pre-Simon being on it, it was more of a no than it is now.”

Sam Allardyce

Former England football manager Sam Allardyce is reportedly in discussions with the BBC to appear on Strictly.

“He met TV executives this week in a hotel bar,” a source reportedly told the Daily Mail.

The source added: “They were talking to him about the Christmas special but emphasised that they want him on a whole series, rather than just a one-off.”


If Allardyce does join the line-up, he’ll be following in the footsteps of former footie stars John Barnes and Robbie Savage.
