Cheryl Tweedy Tipped To Be New Judge On Strictly Come Dancing

This year's show will be pushed back to October.

Right now we are in desperate need of some feel-good TV. With so many of our favourite TV shows postponed or cancelled this year (we’re still not over Love Island tbh) hearing the news that Strictly Come Dancing would be back has given us LIFE.

This year’s show will be pushed back to October and will have a much tighter filming schedule than usual. The dance competition will run for nine episodes this year because of the Covid-19 pandemic and will end a couple of days before Christmas.

The BBC has confirmed that one of our favourite judges, Bruno, will not make it back in time for the first half of the new season. This is because he is also judging Dancing With The Stars in the US, and due to rescheduling it now clashes with Strictly.

One option is that Bruno will join the show via video link on Sunday nights for the results, and it is hoped he will be back in person for the final few episodes.

It is also rumoured that Cheryl Tweedy is set to replace him entirely for 2020’s show. Earlier this summer, Bruno gave Cheryl his blessing to replace him as a judge this year.

Speaking with The Sun on this Bruno said;“If Cheryl does end up doing it there would be nothing wrong with that. She’s a lovely girl. I like her.”

“Of course she’s not me, but we’re all different. We all have different things to offer but I’ve heard nothing concrete.”

The former Girls Aloud singer was previously a judge on The Greatest Dancer, another BBC show, so she already has the credentials and we’d love to see what she could bring to one of our favourite shows of the year!
