Strictly news: Mollie ‘frontrunner for 2024 series’

According to The Sun, after being double-crossed by Harry Clark in the final, The Traitors star Mollie Pearce could be set to waltz onto the Strictly dancefloor.

However, Mollie will have to do battle with Harry and Paul Gorton if she wants to trip the light fantastic when the series launches in September.

An insider claimed that the BBC is desperate for one of the stand-out stars of The Traitors to join the Strictly 2024 line-up.

“Strictly is still four months away and there’s still so much to play for. But The Traitors are obviously at the forefront of everyone’s mind. It would also be a nice tie-in given both shows are hosted by Claudia Winkleman,” an insider claimed.

Claudia hosts Strictly alongside Tess Daly. She also fronts BBC series The Traitors.

‘First she has to fend off the competition’

Speaking about Mollie, who has autoimmune condition ulcerative colitis and a limb difference, they added: “Mollie’s presence would also be a hugely positive moment of representation for people, like her, who have a disability.”

However, Mollie has a fight on her hands. And that’s because Harry and Paul are also reportedly being eyed.

“But, just as with The Traitors, she first has to fend off the competition from rivals Paul and Harry,” the source then concluded.
