It’s our favorite time of the 12 months – this 12 months’s Strictly Come Dancing line-up is formally confirmed, and now we’re patiently ready to see who companions up with who.

After that, it’s only a hop, skip and a leap (actually) to get them to the ballroom on time (let’s hope with rather less painful accidents this time, proper Jamie Laing?)

So, as we await the announcement over this 12 months’s couplings, we at Metro.co.uk have began attempting to determine who will get who when it comes for dancefloor duos.

Which execs are going to be given a stab at this 12 months’s glitterball and who will probably be sidelined? Which performers will deliver the vitality, and who else the comedy? And who has what it takes to try to take Oti’s championship title?

Calculating previous companions, heights, and who we reckon could have good chemistry on the dancefloor, right here’s how we reckon this 12 months’s pairing goes to end up.

Let’s get able to starrrrrt dancing!

Oti Mabuse and Nicola Adams

Beginning with the reigning champion, Oti Mabuse has a combat on her fingers if she needs to realize the tremendous uncommon two years in-a-row win.

However Oti is a lady who’s used to selecting up awards – and she or he could also be simply the girl to be as much as the problem of Strictly’s first all-female dance couple.

Identified to be robust, Oti will want Nicola to maintain up along with her however with Olympic coaching, Nicola must be up for the job.

Dianne Buswell and Jaime Laing

Dianne Buswell and Jaime Laing

Jaime Laing was partnered up with Oti Mabuse final 12 months earlier than an damage in the course of the first group dance compelled him out of the operating.

Giving himself one other shot, we reckon it could most likely be finest to go along with a recent slate, and a recent dance associate, particularly to keep away from direct comparisons to his last-minute substitute, eventual 2019 winner, Kelvin Fletcher.

With excessive vitality and enjoyable routines, Dianne would possibly simply be his gal.

It appears a bit too apparent for Dianne to be paired with HRVY, particularly seeing as she’s nonetheless courting her 2018 YouTuber dance associate Joe Sugg, so Jaime could be an excellent match.

Johannes maisie Strictly

Johannes Radebe and Maisie Smith

EastEnders star Maisie has already lower her tooth on the Strictly dance ground – and even managed to nab the Youngsters In Want glitterball with Kevin Clifton.

She’s additionally feisty, filled with vitality, and sassy… so who else higher to crew up with than Johannes?

Johannes, who took half in his first competitors final 12 months with Catherine Tyldesley, turned recognized for his enjoyable and enthusiastic routines – and will get the very best out of his associate whereas having enjoyable.

If anybody’s going to get her to the glitterball this time round, it’s Maisie.

Amy Dowden and HRVY

HRVY is the youngest competitor on this 12 months’s sequence, and with Dianne out of the operating now we’ve teamed her up with Jaime, we reckon Amy’s the only option.

Final 12 months she even made it to the finale alongside Karim Zeroual, with the excitable pair successful over audiences with their cheeky appeal.

HRVY, who additionally has a formidable music catalogue to select from, ought to learn about rhythm – however does he even have any in terms of the dancefloor?

If anybody can get it out of him, it’s Amy.

Katya Jones and JJ Chalmers

We all know Katya Jones needed to be a part of the primary all-female pairing, however we reckon she’s up for a distinct problem – Paralympian JJ Chalmers.

JJ served in Afghanistan, and misplaced two fingers in a bomb blast, along with his proper elbow disintegrated as nicely.

She is famed for pulling difficult however spectacular routines (Ed Balls’ Gangnam Model stays in our hearts without end) so we all know that she’ll give JJ one thing nice.

We reckon in the event that they have been teamed up, they may even be finale materials.

karen and max

Karen Hauer and Max George

Max George has rather a lot to stay as much as by following within the footsteps of his fellow Wished star Jay McGuinness – who gained in 2015.

However this boy has some strikes, and if anybody’s going to whip him into form, it’s Karen Hauer.

We reckon these two put collectively could possibly be dynamite.

jason and luba

Luba Mushtuk and Jason Bell

Not a lot is understood about former NFL participant Jason Bell in terms of his rhythm, however along with his footballer construct, he must be good for performing some difficult lifts.

Final 12 months, Luba was paired up with James Cracknell – the primary eradicated contestant, so she’ll have one thing to show this 12 months.

Might their aggressive natures really see them pull it out of the bag?

giovanni and clara

Might Clara deal with the Italian star’s drive to win? (Image: BBC)

Clara Amfo and Giovanni Pernice

Giovanni Pernice isn’t shy about being extraordinarily aggressive within the sequence, particularly because it heats up.

After pairing up with Michelle Visage final 12 months, the pair admitted they bought ‘hot-headed’ collectively whereas getting the choreography down.

Maybe somebody a bit easier going like Clara might stability him out – although now we have little doubt she has the drive to push herself as he wants.

janette and bill bailey

These two might make some depraved comedy routines (Image: BBC)

Janette Manrara and Invoice Bailey

If coupled up, comic Invoice Bailey and Janette Manrara could possibly be a hell of loads of enjoyable collectively.

One of many daintest execs, it could make lifts simpler for Invoice, and with each attempting to maintain issues mild, we might see them turning into a favorite pairing (if he can sustain with the resident pocket rocket, that’s).

Invoice could possibly be a shock below the appropriate steering, and Janette’s energy smile and championship choreography would simply make this absolute leisure.

Anton and caroline strictly

Might these two make it to the win? (Image: BBC)

Anton Du Beke and Caroline Quentin

Caroline Quentin was the primary individual to be introduced for this 12 months’s sequence, and instantly our minds paired her up with Anton Du Beke.

The actress and comic really educated as a dancer as a toddler, coaching at Tring Faculty of Performing Arts, so we might do nicely to not underestimate her.

Anton bought to the ultimate final 12 months with EastEnders star Emma Barton, so he’ll be eager to maintain up his tempo within the competitors.

He additionally creates items devoted to old skool Hollywood, and in addition brings the humorous along with his charisma on the present, turning into a agency favorite.

Can this be the 12 months he lastly raises the glitterball?

Aljaz Skorjanec and Jacqui Smith

Former Residence secretary Jacqui is the second Labour MP to tackle the problem, following within the footsteps of Ed Balls.

As one of many longest serving execs, Aljaz has seen all of it and been paired up with every kind of companions, together with Viscountess Emma Weymouth final 12 months.

However how will he fare with Jacqui as a associate?

gorka ranvir neil jones strictly

Which of those two will fortunate Ranvir have as a associate? (Image: BBC)

Neil Jones/Gorka Marquez and Ranvir Singh

At simply 5ft 3in, Ranvir goes to want one of many shorter males to bop alongside – and as a lot as we strive, we will’t appear to choose between Neil or Gorka for her.

On one hand, Gorka is due a comeback after lacking out on final 12 months’s competitors, and at 5ft 6in could possibly be an appropriate top for her on the dancefloor.

His companions have additionally been across the identical top as Ranvir – Katie Piper is 5ft 2in, Tameka Empson 5ft 3in and Alexandra Burke is 5ft 4in.

Extra: Strictly Come Dancing

On the opposite, it appears fairly harsh if Neil, who solely bought his first shot on the glitterball final 12 months, was relegated to change into a sub as soon as once more so rapidly.

He would additionally make for some nice choreography and labored nicely with Alex Scott when he needed to step in final 12 months – and she or he’s 5ft 3in.

So we guess for this one we’ll have to attend for launch evening.

Strictly Come Dancing returns later this 12 months on BBC One.
