Craig Revel Horwood has shared that the Strictly Come Dancing team are "really gunning" for a return in the midst of uncertainty of the show's feasibility to go ahead due to the coronavirus.

With many shows having had their production postponed or cancelled, there have been concerns as to whether the popular programme will be able to go ahead.

The judge has said that not all dances require partners to be touching each other, and that even if touching weren't possible later in the year, "something else" will happen instead.

He told Heart Breakfast’s Jamie Theakston and Amanda Holden: “Well there’s a lot of dances you can do – the Charleston, you can do contemporary, you can do street, modern jazz – there’s lots of stuff you can do that doesn’t involve touching one another, but I’m hoping by October, darling, we might be able to at least get into hold.
