And as name’s continue to roll in, a love Island star’s odds on appearing on the dance-floor seem more in her favour.

Bookmakers Coral revealed that the 2017 dating show winner Amber Gill, could be set to grace the ballroom this year, pricing her odds at 2-1.

Coral’s Harry Aitkenhead said: “Amber’s a self confessed Strictly superfan and we think that she could get her opportunity to take to the dance-floor herself in the next series.

“We’ve slashed the odds on it happening.”

The reality show winner appeared on Strictly’s sister show It Takes Two last year, as part of the celeb jugging panel who gave the low-down on how they thought the contestants were doing.

The Love Island winner joined comedian Rufus Hound and presenter Gabby Roslin on the sofa to dissect the celebrities’ rehearsal videos.

She was branded “harsh” by Gethin Jones, after her strong words about Saffron Barker, who was partnered with AJ Pritchard in the last series.

She said: “I absolutely love Saffron. I don’t know how she does it. She goes out and give her all, but she just needs to let go a bit more. I feel like I’m being harsh. It’s the second week, let her get into her flow.”

She was left red-faced when presenter Gethin joked she was the “harshest judge” on the celebrity panel.

Loose Women star Stacey Solomon, is also on the list, after previously opening up about how much she’d like to do the dancing competition.

She told Good Housekeeping: “I love the show, I love the outfits, the routines, and how the contestants go from one to 1,000,” she explained.

“But I would be the one that didn’t get it… Everybody would expect me to go on this journey, but I would be persistently the same after 10 weeks! I would just stay the same!”

Made In Chelsea’s Jamie Laing could be set to reprise his role that never was this year after having pull out of last year’s series due to an injury before filming began.

At the time, he explained: “Basically, you have this muscle in your foot, right, which is called the plantar fascia. It’s the main muscle in your foot and I’ve torn it.”

The king of radio is also on the cards, as the Virgin Radio Breakfast Show DJ Chris Evans’ could be set to take the plunge.

He revealed that he had signed onto the 2019 series, but it was never confirmed whether his signing was official or not as it turned out he was struggling with a knee injury.

He told pro dancer Anton du Beke at the time: “I’ve got an issue with my left knee. I’ve got a serious issue with my left knee. Vassos’ mate, the super knee doctor, is inspecting my knee before Friday. Honestly it’s true!”

Anton replied: “You’ve committed to it. Don’t worry about your left knee, I’ll lift you like I do with everyone else I’ve danced with, you’ll be the same!”

Corrie’s Jack P Shepherd is also a high contender, after confessing he would “do Strictly over any of the others [reality TV show].”

But the end is nigh and the line-up with soon be released and we just can’t wait!
