Strictly Come Dancing 2020's contestants are slowly being revealed during the lead up to this year's show, including Maisie Smith, Jamie Laing, Max George and JJ Chalmers.
Strictly Come Dancing 2020 will go ahead this year, despite the coronavirus pandemic doing its best to bring the hit BBC dance show to a halt.
And now, with the show just around the corner, this year's celebrity contestants are starting to be revealed.
This week, Caroline Quentin, Jason Bell and Max George, Maisie Smith and Jamie Laing were confirmed as contestants taking to the dance floor, but who else has been revealed?
Who has been confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing 2020?
Caroline Quentin is a 60-year-old English actress best known for her roles in Jonathan Creek, Men Behaving Badly, Blue Murder and Life Begins.
Speaking of going on Strictly Come Dancing on The One Show, Caroline said she was scared, but also excited about the upcoming experience.
Caroline had some dance training when she was younger, studying ballet between the ages of three to 12, but she admits: "My knees are 50 years older than last time I attempted any of it!"
American football player Jason Bell has also been revealed as one of the contestants for Strictly 2020.
Jason, 42, has played for the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants, but will be hitting the dance floor in a matter of weeks.
The American sports star said he was "thrilled" as he is a huge fan of the dancing show.
Jason's wife and six-year-old daughter are said to be excited and "ready to support him".
The Wanted's Max George will also take part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
Max follows in the steps of his former bandmate, Jay McGuinness, who won the show in 2015.
Good Morning Britain host Ranvir Singh confirmed she will be taking part in the upcoming series this week.
Co-host Susanna Reid, who has previously taken part in Strictly, told Ranvir: "You have no idea what you're letting yourself in for!"
Ranvir said: "It's been in my head for so long, and now we're talking about it on TV – it's actually really happening!"
She went on to say: "The initial feeling of being confirmed for Strictly is one of complete terror.
"Feels like embarking on a rollercoaster, where you really want to do it but you are equally scared. Hopefully after the first dance I will feel exhilarated rather than sick!"
EastEnders star Maisie Smith, 19, was confirmed as one of the Strictly celebrity contestants on This Morning this week.
Maisie said it is "a dream come true" to be on the show, saying: "Get me in those sequins, I can’t wait to dive into the Strictly fancy dress box this winter!"
Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing, who was meant to take part in the show last year, will be giving Strictly another go.
The reality TV star was forced to drop out of the series in 2019 following an injury, but is excited to take part in BBC dancing show this year.
He said: "Here we go again, hopefully this time I can last long enough so my mum can see me dance.
"The reason I’m doing it, is to make my mum proud but all I did last year was make her even more disappointed. Let’s change that this year, can’t wait!!”
Comedian and presenter Bill Bailey will be putting on his dancing shoes on as he competes in this year's Strictly.
Olympian and boxing champion Nicola Adams will be making history this year on Strictly as she takes part in the first same-sex dance partnership.
Speaking of the historic moment, Nicola said: "I wanted to thank the BBC for supporting me and making me the first ever all female-pairing; and it’s amazing to be a part of the movement for change, diversity and breaking boundaries in the entertainment industry."
Television presenter, a former Royal Marine and Invictus Games medallist JJ Chalmers has also been confirmed for the dancing show.
Prince Harry's friend said of the announcement: "My whole life is defined by facing challenges. Whether it's becoming a Royal Marine Commando, recovering from my injuries sustained in Afghanistan to competing in The Invictus Games.
"Now as a TV Presenter I'm lucky enough to witness some of the greatest sporting contests in the world.
"Strictly is a whole different ball game in respect to the challenges I will face but I'm up for an adventure and at least my mum will know where I am!”
