We’re still weeks away from the end of the 2016 series of ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, but bosses have already begun thinking about who they should sign up for next year.

According to reports, Jessica Ennis-Hill, is at the top of their shortlist, following the announcement that she was retiring from athletics after the Rio 2016 Games, with the BBC reportedly hoping she’ll follow in the footsteps of fellow Olympians Greg Rutherford and Claudia Fragapane.

Gymnast Louis Smith also appeared on the show in 2012, and took home the Glitterball trophy.
