Strictly Come Dancing bosses have reportedly been in talks to bring back the show’s live audience when it returns later in the year. With fans unable to attend during the ongoing pandemic, this is the best Strictly news we've heard in ages.

The update comes as other reports suggest the 2021 series will also resume a full 13-show run in September after the 2020 show was cut short to just nine weeks due to Covid-19 restrictions.

According to The Sun, a source has said: “The rough plans for the series are starting to come together, and that includes getting the show's most important ingredient back in — the audience.

“Producers hope that by the last week of September, when the first live show is pencilled in, Covid restrictions will have been lifted and they'll be able to get as many fans into Elstree as possible.

“There might be some social distancing, but it will give the show a lift, having had just cast and crew present in 2020.”

Despite it still being a very fun series to watch, the 2020 show did admittedly feel pretty different. Strict social distancing measures were in place, judge Bruno Tonioli was absent due to travel restrictions, dancing duos were put in their own individual bubbles so that they could work and perform together and many of the group dances were pre-recorded.

This time round, we’re certainly ready for some semblance of Strictly normality come the autumn.

Let's all just keep our fingers crossed, eh!
