Speaking at the Edinburgh TV Fest virtual event, Kate Phillips said “we’ll announce the celebrity line-up at the end of this month, I think, we’re just planning that now but they are all on board and very excited.”

She added “ it will be rather special this series… I think there will be heightened emotions at part, I think a lot of the dances will have real poignancy, the pros have all been isolating together for the last couple of weeks, so they are now rehearsing together the big dance numbers”.

Strictly will return to BBC One this October after a series of ‘best of’ specials have aired.
