However, the BBC have now announced that they will both participate in the professional line-up for the upcoming series.

RadioTimes.com recently spoke to Kevin and Karen about returning to Strictly.

The professional dance partners said they “hoped” to be back for Strictly this year – but at the time were yet to hear anything.

“It’s such a great show and we have a great time every year. So hopefully when we get that call, they’ll still want us around,” said Kevin.

Well, it looks like they did!
