Years & Years and It's A Sin star Olly Alexander is reportedly a top target for this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Years & Years frontman Olly Alexander is reportedly a target for this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The singer has enjoyed a successful 2021 thanks to his leading-man turn in the acclaimed Channel 4 AIDS drama It's A Sin, which was followed up by a memorable performance of the classic song of the same name at the Brit Awards in a duet with Sir Elton John.

"Everyone wants a piece of Olly at the moment and the Beeb are no different," a source told The Sun.

"Strictly have Olly in their sights and have offered him a spot in this year's lineup, should he wish to take part.

"Olly's performance at The Brits with Elton showed he was an outstanding dancer as well as a singer and getting him onto this year's series would be a huge coup.

"He is everything Strictly loves and given his enormous popularity with younger people, it could bring a new audience to the show."

The 30-year-old has previously revealed that he would consider a turn on Strictly on the condition that he is given a male partner - something that is thought to be on the agenda for the first time this year.

Other names linked with Strictly, which returns to BBC One in September, include Line of Duty's Gregory Piper, Good Morning Britain weatherman Alex Beresford and RuPaul's Drag Race star Baga Chipz.
