The BBC have taken a break for the weekend but the weekend means nothing for the Strictly Spoiler as I’m on hand to reveal the eleventh 2016 celebrity that the BBC will be revealing on Monday. Obviously this isn’t 100% confirmed and The Strictly Spoiler has been wrong before (once) so don’t take this as gospel but the next contestant may be:
This spoiler has come from a series of clues left on what appeared to be Lesley’s Twitter account along with her being heavily rumoured to be participating anyway and may be accurate but I’m much less certain than I was when I originally posted. See updates below!
UPDATE – Well it seems the BBC have announced another name. If I was cynical I’d think they were waiting for me to make this post. I’m still pretty certain this person will be announced as expected on Monday especially as the BBC are due to reveal all 4 final names on Monday
FURTHER UPDATE – I’m now less certain that this person will be announced as Linda Robson has stated that the twitter account concerned IS NOT Lesley. Of course Lesley has been heavily rumoured by the press and many of the rumours have still come to fruition (Will Young, Anastacia and Ed Balls being three) but I’m now no longer certain that Lesley will be announced on Monday. If she is I’m reasonably certain it will be during The One Show as she isn’t the sort of contestant I would expect to be announced on Scott Mills on Radio 1 which is when one person will be announced (possibly Judge Robert Rinder – which it was so there’s one announced before the BBC :-D)
FURTHER FURTHER UPDATE – The twitter account that was the basis of this spoiler has now been suspended and seems to have been fake. I’m a little disappointed as I’m usually very good at spotting fake twitter accounts. I think my keenness to get at least one name in before the BBC clouded my judgement. Of course she could still be announced later today but I’m now down to 10% certainty from 90%
Lesley is best known for her long time role as Dorien Green in the comedy Birds Of A Feather and at the age of 70 will be the oldest female participant on Strictly Come Dancing. At the time of writing Lesley is a 100-1 shot with bookmaker Coral putting her the outsider along with Ed Balls however that price may change if and when she is confirmed.
