Strictly Come Dancing's professional dancers will reportedly isolate together in a hotel in order to film this year's group dances in advance.

Strictly Come Dancing's professional dancers will reportedly spend two weeks isolating together in a hotel in order to film this year's group dances.

The show is expected to air as planned this autumn, albeit with major changes to the production in order to comply with the latest health guidelines relating to the coronavirus pandemic.

The group dances had expected to be scrapped this year but according to The Sun, producers have come up with a plan to enable them to go ahead.

The dancers are said to have been told to begin rehearsals at home before moving into a hotel together, where they will pre-record all of the group dances for the entire series.

A source told the newspaper: "By pre-recording the performances Strictly can ensure the big, impressive sets and huge production values will remain on the show, without 50 crew members changing up the set every week."

The BBC is due to confirm the celeb lineup by mid-August and has reportedly warned would-be contestants that they may have to isolate away from their families in order to take part.
