Myleene and Nicki for Strictly?

The celebrity duo both previously appeared together on the ITV talent show Popstars in 2001, which led to Myleene starring in Hear'Say.

A TV insider told the Daily Star newspaper: "Strictly want both to be in the line-up.

"They are household names and haven't really worked together since Popstars so it would be an amazing reunion."

Will Strictly go ahead?

Meanwhile, Craig Revel Horwood recently revealed he's confident there's "a way around" social distancing measures to ensure Strictly Come Dancing goes ahead as planned.

The TV judge said: "I've spoken to the producers and they're working through absolutely everything to make it happen. I know, fingers crossed, it will.

"There is some way around it, there has to be. People love the show, it's great entertainment ... We really want it back and I know BBC One are working extremely hard to make that happen for the audience."

Craig - who was also a judge on Australia's Dancing with the Stars - suggested the idea of shooting the show without an audience as a means of bypassing the government's guidelines.

He said: "When I did it in Australia, we managed to do it without a studio audience. And when people needed to be isolated, one couple, for instance, stayed in a hotel for two weeks and they performed live from the hotel roof top.

"They set remote cameras up and it was absolutely amazing. There was a summer breeze wafting through their costumes and it was amazing. So there is a way around it, and it could be even more spectacular."

Other names in the frame for the dancing contest include Michelle Keegan. The former Our Girl actress is said to be top of producer's lists, but a source has said she wants to focus on her acting career.
