HELLO! reached out to a Strictly representative who declined to comment.

It's no secret that key members of the royal family are avid fans of Strictly Come Dancing. Back in 2019, Prince William revealed that his wife Kate, and his mother-in-law Carole Middleton are huge fans of the dancing competition.

Speaking to Strictly judge Shirley Ballas and host Claudia Winkleman at a charity gala, the then-Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge explained: "I have watched the show [Strictly] a couple of times. Catherine is a huge fan and my mother-in-law loves it."

Down-to-earth couple Zara and Mike Tindall also love watching Strictly Come Dancing, so much so that the royal even enjoyed a dance with Anton Du Beke at a celebrity charity evening at the Celtic Manor Resort in Newport, back in 2017.

Speaking about the show, she said: "We love watching it."
