Is Strictly 2020 definitely happening?

BBC boss Dan McGolpin has confirmed that the new season is still set to go ahead.

"It wouldn't be the same if we didn't have Strictly in the autumn, would it?" he said during an interview with Emma Bullimore on BBC Essex.

"Of course the BBC is doing everything it can, and I know that everyone involved in that production team would absolutely love that to happen this Autumn.

"So we've really just got to keep watching the government advice, thinking about what's possible.

"And if there's any way of bringing Strictly back this autumn, then we absolutely will. That's very much our intentions, so yeah fingers crossed."

Judges Bruno Tonioli, Craig Revel-Horwood, Shirley Ballas and Motsi Mabuse are all expected to return to the panel.
