Rumour has it that producers are struggling to land their dream lineup this time around, with A-listers apparently turning down the show over fears of the infamous "Strictly curse".

According to reports, a number of big names turned down the BBC dancing show because of the "curse" contestants often refer to as.

The curse, blamed for a string of contestants' relationships going straight down the pan after their appearance on SCD, has so far claimed more than 10 happy couples.

"The curse is real and it contributed to the breakdown of one of the strongest couples in showbiz", a source alleged to The Sun.

But while reports are claiming that she show has struggled to get celebrities to sign on the dotted line - particularly after seeing Jamie and Louise reportedly split after she appeared on the show previous year - the BBC series has already confirmed some pretty big names who will be taking to the ballroom. 'No one wants to end up in the same boat'.

Ben Cohen also got together with dance partner Kristine Rihanoff after splitting from his wife, while Natasha Kaplinsky and dance partner Brendan Cole both separated from their partners to start a relationship.

Mollie King, Davood Ghadami, Ruth Langsford, Gemma Atkinson, Reverend Richard Coles, Joe McFadden, Simon Rimmer, Aston Merrygold and Susan Calman have all been confirmed to join the line up this year.

With the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 line-up finally filling up ahead of the launch date, there are still some more names to be announced.

As the world seemingly hurtles from one crisis to another, it will be sweet relief to many in this country that Strictly Come Dancing will soon be returning to our screens.
