An all-star version of 'Strictly Come Dancing' could be on its way.
The BBC One show - which sees celebrities paired with professional dancers to learn a new routine each week - will return to TV screens for its 10th series later this month and bosses are keen to celebrate its success by signing up previous winners and finalists to find the ultimate champion.
BBC talent executive Daisy Moore told The Sun newspaper: "We're on our 10th series now, we've had ten champions. Every person who gets to the final, they're all brilliant by that stage.
"So you could easily have a retrospective programme and I think the audience would love that."
The first winner of 'Strictly' was newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky, while McFly star Harry Judd took home the coveted glitterball trophy last year.
Other previous winners have included Jill Halfpenny, Kara Tointon, Mark Ramprakash, Alesha Dixon and Darren Gough.
The latest series of 'Strictly' will start on September 15th with a launch show revealing which celebrities are taking part and who they are going to be partnered with.
Stars rumoured to have signed up include Fern Britton, Johnny Ball, Jerry Hall, Victoria Pendelton and Kimberley Walsh.
