Is Greg James dropping hints that he's going to be on Strictly Come Dancing?

The Radio 1 DJ appears to be winding his Snapchat followers up with 'news' of his entry into this year's Strictly line-up

Greg James appears to teasing us Strictly fans, posting videos on Snapchat as if he's announcing the news that he's taking part in the latest series.


The BBC Radio 1 DJ is careful to ensure he's stood in just the right place - in front of a huge Strictly poster (we're assuming he's at work and this isn't just his chosen wall decoration).


He later dances across a zebra crossing singing the 'da da da da dadada' theme, doing the same while grabbing a coffee, too.


Whether it's all a big wind up remains to be seen. There's plenty of places left in this year's line-up, so he could be doing it. Only Ed Balls, Will Young and Laura Whitmore have been confirmed.

And this year's stars haven't been keeping all that tight-lipped so far. Will Young literally told fans to look at his Twitter at 3pm yesterday for big news and – with fans well aware today's would be announced on the Radio 1 Breakfast show – heavily rumoured Laura Whitmore tweeted she was up bright and early meaning all eyes were on her account come the announcement.

So perhaps James is simply telling us he's doing it and we should start getting excited about seeing his ballroom moves...

As is tradition, another official announcement is expected to follow tomorrow.
