Made in Chelsea star Laing was forced to drop out of the 2019 series after injuring his foot, with his partner Oti Mabuse ultimately going on to win the series paired with Laing’s replacement, ex-Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher.
But speaking to RadioTimes.com at the National Television Awards 2020, another Strictly pro, Anton du Beke, revealed he hopes to see Laing get a second chance in 2020.
“I hope he does it this year,” Du Beke said on the red carpet.
“I don’t know if they’ve asked him, but if they do, I hope he does it. He was lovely, so I hope he comes back and does it.”
There has, of course, been much discussion as to whether Strictly will include same-sex couples in its line-up this year after ITV rival Dancing on Ice did the same.
