Strictly Come Dancing's iconic Blackpool ballroom show will reportedly return this year after three years.

The iconic Blackpool ballroom show will reportedly return to Strictly Come Dancing this year.

The special programme - broadcast from the Blackpool Tower at the halfway point of each series - was scrapped in 2020 and 2021 due to coronavirus restrictions, which have all since been lifted.

According to The Sun, producers of the show have alerted the venue and nearby hotels to be on standby for filming to take place in November.

"Blackpool week is such an important part of Strictly and everyone was gutted not to be able to go for the last two years," a source told the newspaper.

"The production team are working out the logistics but everyone is feeling really hopeful that the show will be able to return there for 2022.

"And the fact that it will reach the landmark 20th series makes it all the more important."

The new series kicks off on BBC One in September.
