The glitterball may have only just finished turning above the Strictly dancefloor but rumours of who will be strutting their stuff next year have already begun with abundance.
Following in the footsteps of comedian Alan Carr and former BBC Radio 2 breakfast show DJ, Chris Evans, who are both tipped to do a turn on Strictly Come Dancing, comes the news that Fearne Cotton could be the next to be ‘revealed’.
While no celebrities have been confirmed for the 2019 line-up just yet, the bookies already have BBC Radio DJ Fearne Cotton as a firm favourite to be involved.

Fearne, 37, is now only 2/1 to sign up for the next series and she could be followed with a quickstep by BBC Breakfast presenter Steph McGovern.
The 36-year-old is tipped to join a long line of breakfast TV personalities to put their best foot forward on the dancefloor, especially after the likes of Ore Oduba impressed the Strictly judges on the way to winning the fourteenth series.

They are not the only ones to be on the shopping list of Strictly bosses. Former X Factor presenter and current top pop star Olly Murs, would also be one that they are trying to snare, a source has told The Express.
With The Greatest Dancer starting on BBC One after Christmas, which features Strictly professional dancer Oti Mabuse among as one of the ‘coaches’, there is hope that one of the show’s other stars could join Oti in the next Strictly line-up.

The dancer has said that Cheryl should be signed up, as she would be a great asset to the show.
Speaking to The Sun, Otis said that she would, "love to see her try," as it would give viewers the chance to see, "another side that they haven’t seen yet."
Cheryl versus Alan Carr on the dancefloor could be just the match up that gives Strictly some sparkle in 2019.
