Who is rumoured to be doing Strictly 2022?

Andrew Garfield

The Hollywood star has just played the Oscar-nominated lead in Tick Tick...Boom!, but rather than searching for another Academy Award-worthy role, he's eying a different trophy.

Appearing on The Graham Norton Show in February, he told fellow guest and Strictly pro Johannes Radebe: "It's hard to confess this, but I would absolutely love to do Strictly. I would absolutely love it. It's on the bucket list."

Scarlett Moffatt

From her humble roots on the early days of Gogglebox, Moffatt has carved out a hugely successful TV career with a number of documentaries and entertainment shows to her name recently.

She's also no stranger to reality shows as a previous winner of I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here!, and is known for her love of dancing on TikTok.

Strictly loves a soap star contestant, and now that Marsh has left her long-running role on Coronation Street she's free of any strict filming schedules.

Marsh is also now a BBC star as a Morning Live presenter, so she's ticking all the boxes.

He might be better known for his hard-hitting documentaries and interviews, but Theroux is just as keen on sequinning up as the next celebrity.

Speaking on The Jonathan Ross Show in November, he admitted: "I like to think I'm a good dancer. I know I've had too many drinks when I'm in the kitchen dancing while listening to something on the smart speaker, often hip-hop, and I start doing the funky robot and then I start doing MC Hammer spins. And that's where it happens and I start thinking I should really go on Strictly."

Comedian Rosie Jones has said she would "absolutely love" to go on Strictly and was delighted to see deaf contestant Rose Ayling-Ellis win in 2021 as she had grown up never seeing anybody on TV with cerebral palsy like her.

She told Metro: "In recent years people like Rose Ayling-Ellis on Strictly have just shown that having a disability isn't a disadvantage and it will never stop me! It's about showing people anything is possible… bring it on!"
