Strictly Come Dancing bosses have started the hunt for their 2020 series and Brooklyn Beckham and Lady Amelia Windsor are reportedly high up on their list of potential contestants.

It feels like only yesterday that the nation watched Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse waltz off with the glitterball trophy, but Strictly execs are already thinking ahead to the new series and have reportedly drawn up a list of 30 potential contestants.

Top of the list is the oldest of the Beckham kids, with BBC bosses reportedly keen to sign 20-year-old photographer Brooklyn up for the upcoming series.

‘Brooklyn is the main target for casting chiefs at the moment, because he will appeal to his parents’ fans as well as his own,’ a source told The Sun.

‘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.’

Now that we’d like to see…

Following on from the Meghan Markle mania that’s sweeping the nation (and after the success of Viscountess Emma Weymouth during last year’s show), TV executives are also reportedly hoping to get in on the Royal fever and snap up Lady Amelia Windsor.

At just 24-years-old, the model and socialite is no ordinary Royal and is far more likely to be seen on the ‘frow’ during Fashion Week than at Buckingham Palace.

‘This year, the Royals have dominated the headlines,’ the source explained, ‘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.’

Strictly Come Dancing declined to comment on this story when approached by Metro.co.uk.

It comes after reports emerged that Strictly bosses were hoping to have a RuPaul’s Drag Race UK contestant compete on the next series, having been pipped to the post for the first same-sex competitive partnership by Dancing on Ice.

A source told The Sunday Times that the show’s execs hoped a female-presenting drag queen would be the perfect way to get Strictly’s loyal audiences on board with a same-sex couple.

Does that mean we might see The Vivienne, Divina de Campo or Baga Chipz reprise the Strictly challenge from the final? We can only dream.

Strictly Come Dancing is set to return to BBC One later this year.
