Good Morning Britain host Adil Ray hints that he could be part of this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Good Morning Britain relief presenter Adil Ray has hinted that he may be part of this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The show is due to return to BBC One towards the end of October, albeit with a shorter run this year due to complications caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

Pro dancer Neil Jones appeared on Friday's edition of GMB and was quizzed by Ranvir Singh on rumours that Ray may be in the celeb lineup.

"Normally we find out when you find out," he replied. "So, normally we'd be in rehearsals and we'd find out [and go], 'Oh OK, how tall is this person? Where do they live, what's going to happen?'"

Ray then revealed his height and asked whether those taking part should train by themselves before meeting their professional partners.

"If you can get in some practice, do it," Jones answered.

Ray is a regular stand-in for Piers Morgan on the morning show and also appears in the BBC comedy Citizen Khan.
