Darcey, 50, had been a judge on Strictly Come Dancing for seven years, taking on the role from former champion of the BBC dance show Alesha Dixon, 40.
It seems another former champion could become the new judge, joining Shirley Ballas, 58, Craig Revel-Horwood, 54, and Bruno Tonioli, 63, on the panel.
Back in 2011, a year before Darcey took on the judging role, McFly star Harry Judd, 33, won the show alongside professional dancer Aliona Vilani, 35.
With rumours about who could become Darcey’s successor going into overdrive, Harry’s name has been thrown into the mix of a number of stars to take on the judging role.
Talks are ongoing
Harry also won the 2015 Strictly Christmas special alongside professional Joanne Clifton, 35, and has since gone on to appear in stage show Rip it Up alongside several other Strictly alumni.
With a wealth of experience and having a young fan base from his time in McFly, it seems producers are wanting to lock down Harry to make the show more appealing to a younger audience.
“Last year that was behind the decision to sign up YouTuber Joe Sugg as a contestant. And Harry has millions of young fans thanks to McFly,” a source revealed.
“They know that he would also hit the right note with older audiences as he is very much a family man, he is a dad with two children.
“Talks are ongoing at the moment, but as it stands, Harry is a firm favourite,” the source explained to The Sun.
