Strictly Come Dancing is set to return later this year as BBC bosses continue to keep an eye on the ongoing global crisis. This, however, hasn’t stopped fans speculating which celebrities will be taking part, but ITV favourite Lorraine Kelly has set tongue’s wagging with a cryptic clue, forcing fans to believe she is all signed up for the show.

BBC bosses have put Strictly Come Dancing fans minds at ease recently after fears the show would be cancelled due to the current coronavirus pandemic.
The show has said they will continue to monitor the current situation and government guidelines, but as of right now they won’t be cancelling the upcoming series.
A BBC spokesperson told Express.co.uk: “We are of course looking at contingency plans and what happens in what eventuality bearing in mind we don’t know what the guidelines will be in three weeks, let alone five months.”
Bosses have also revealed the line-up of professional dancers last month and said the celebrities will be announced in the summer.

This has just made Strictly fans more eager to spot the clues and guess which of their favourite celebrities will be taking part.
Lorraine Kelly has always been a viewer favourite, with her early morning show, but since the lockdown, the presenter has been joining the Good Morning Britain cast in place of her normal 9am show.
The presenter, however, has sent fans wild with speculation after posting a video to her social media of her dancing.
TV presenters have always done well with Strictly Come Dancing fans, whether that be Kate Garraway or BBC Breakfast presenter Naga Munchetty, so Lorraine is a shoo-in if the rumours are true.
The odds on Lorraine taking part in the 2020 series of the BBC show have now been slashed, making it more and more likely she is indeed taking part.
The video Lorraine posted wasn’t just of her dancing, but of her dancing with one of the professional dancers from the BBC show.
Ever since she posted the video, the bookies are taking bets of 4/1, down from 10/1, that Lorraine will be taking part.
Lorraine isn’t the only presenter that has been hinted at this year, there have also been calls for BBC Newsreader, Huw Edwards, and BBC Breakfast star Louise Minchin after she took part in a recent Sport Relief challenge.

If Lorraine is in fact named as one of the celebrities, could she go on to win the 2020 series?
But who else could be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing 2020?
Made in Chelsea star Jamie Laing was paired up with professional dancer Oti Mabuse last year, before an accident landed him in a cast and unable to perform.
Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher was asked to step in and he and Oti eventually went on to win the show.

It seems Jamie’s time on the show isn’t up just yet though and BoyleSports currently have the reality star at 7/1 odds of joining again.
Sarah Kinsella, Spokesperson for BoyleSports commented: “Jamie Laing missed out on Dancing On Ice and now punters are backing him to take part in Strictly Come Dancing instead.
“The reality TV star is now 4/5 favourite from 7/4, placing him ahead of Jack P Shepherd from Coronation Street at even money and Lorraine Kelly at 4/1.”
Only time will tell which celebrities will be taking part, but for now, the speculation must continue.
Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One later this year.
