Having David and Victoria Beckham sitting front row on Strictly Come Dancing would be a considerable coup.
The amateur photographer has nearly 12m followers on Instagram and it's thought he could help attract a younger audience and Beckham family fans to the show.
While still only young he also has had a string of high-profile girlfriends including film star Chloë Moretz and current squeeze Nicola Peltz.
There is also the added appeal that the Beckham's and their friends will attend the shows.
Model Lady Amelia Windsor - the granddaughter of Prince Edward, The Duke of Kent and 39th in line for the throne - is also on the 30 name wish-list for the 2020 series.
BBC chiefs are keen to have link to the royals because of the huge recent news headlines.
A source told The Sun: “Brooklyn is the main target for casting chiefs at the moment, because he will appeal to his parents’ fans as well as his own.
"He has a young, cool image and they think that will win over new fans. Plus, they would love to get David and Victoria sitting in the front row.”
The source continued: “Every year the team look at what is dominating the national conversation before deciding who they want on board.“
"Last year England’s lionesses did so well that they wanted a lioness, so they asked Alex Scott. This year, the Royals have dominated the headlines. So it’s no surprise that they have now decided to target a member of the Royal family."
"Lady Amelia is both stunning and very young, so she should appeal to a young market too.”
Social media influencer Saffron Barker and kids’ TV star Karim Zeroual were cast last year in the show's bid to chase the 16-24 market, but it was Emmerdale star Kelvin Fletcher and his partner Oti Mabusewho walked away with the glitter ball trophy.
