Rumours for this year's Strictly Come Dancing have been flying around for weeks now, but the latest one has got us very excited about the 2018 series.

According to new reports, bosses are extremely keen to sign up one of the Spice Girls!

Of course, Emma Bunton took part in the show back in 2006, but with new rumours of the band's reunion, bosses want either Melanie C, Melanie B or Geri Horner to take part in the 2018 series.

That would be amazing! 💃

After years of rumours, the Spice Girls got fans very excited earlier this year when they all went round to Geri's house with their former manager Simon Fuller. All five members of the popular group attended the reunion, with talks about a potential tour in the pipeline.

Although nothing has been confirmed, the group could be performing at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding next month.

Meanwhile, rumours about which celebrities could be on the 2018 series of Strictly Come Dancing continue to heat up.

Bosses are reportedly keen to 'break the bank' to sign up former Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan. According to the Daily Star, a show insider said, “Everyone knows that having Michelle Keegan out on the Strictly dance floor would be ratings gold."

They then added, “Everyone behind the scenes thinks she would set the dance floor alight. It’s now a matter of convincing her to sign up."

Check out the full list of rumoured celebrities in the gallery below:
