Stephanie Davis 'snubbed' from Strictly Come Dancing 2017 line up

Celebrity Big Brother 2016

Former Hollyoaks actress Stephanie Davis has reportedly been 'snubbed' from the Strictly line up.

Apparently the one-time Celebrity Big Brother housemate was in talks with Strictly Come Dancing bosses to join this year's show.

But recent tabloid headlines involving ex Jeremy McConnell have seen her supposedly turned away.

"Stephanie was hoping the talks that were taking place with Strictly Come Dancing would see her taking part in this year's show," a source said this week. "But unfortunately they didn't want to be associated with her at this moment in time so have quashed any chance of her appearing now or in the future."

The insider told The Sun newspaper: "She is devastated she was hoping this could be her big come back!.

"It's just another set back she didn't need along with the charges hanging over her with the assault on Jezz."

Right now the BBC has revealed nine names of the official Strictly Come Dancing 2017 cast, announcing a new name each day.

Confirmed so far are The Saturdays' Mollie King, EastEnders actor Davood Ghadami, Host of ITV's This Morning and regular Loose Women panellist Ruth Langsford, Reverend Richard Coles, and soap actress Gemma Atkinson.

Also on the official line up right now are TV chef and presenter Simon Rimmer, Holby City actor Joe McFadden, BBC Radio 4 comic Susan Calman and JLS singer Aston Merrygold.

Alongside those officially confirmed, rumoured celebs for the new series include comic Brian Conley, Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins, Gogglebox stars Steph and Dom Parker, Olympic gymnast Max Whitlock, Robot Wars host Angela Scanlon, Bros singer Matt Goss and marathon runner Paula Radcliffe.

Strictly Come Dancing starts on BBC One in the autumn.
