The Strictly Come Dancing 2016 professionals are still yet to be signed ahead of a big shake up one the BBC One show.

We already know that this year's line up of Strictly pros will see some changes with four names having previously announced their exits.

Long time performers Aliona Vilani, Ola Jordan, Kristina Rihanoff as well a relative newbie Tristan MacManus have said they won't be back.

As for who else may go, who will replace those that have left and whether any former pros will be returning, nothing has been confirmed yet.

And it's not just us fans being kept in the dark with pro dancer Joanne Clifton revealing this weekend that she too had no idea about the plans.

“We don’t know [about returning] and I’ve got everything crossed,” she said. “Everything that can be crossed on my body is crossed.

“It was about May last year that we found out. There’s a lot of changes this year: some people have left and stuff, so I’m guessing it’s that. I really don’t know.”

Speaking to the Daily Express newspaper, Joanne went on say how she and all the show's pros past and present stay in touch.

“The thing is, whatever anyone makes of it, we’re all really close,” she explained. “We’ve got a WhatsApp group, us pros, and we’re still talking about it.

“Even Kristina and Ola that are not going back, we’re all talking to each-other."

The new series of Strictly Come Dancing will air on BBC One later this year.
