It is hoped the popular Saturday entertainment programme does go ahead this year despite the coronavirus outbreak, although the set up could look very different.
One thing which won’t change if all goes ahead as planned will be the big A-list celebrities signing up to take part.
Of course, fans of the show won’t know who is going to be strutting their stuff until a lot later this year, with the cast list beginning to be revealed from July onwards.
However, with the nation needing some light relief in light of the months-long lockdown, the comedy duo of Jennifer and Joanne could be the perfect addition to the line-up to lift viewers spirits.
