Judges: It comes after Strictly Come Dancing bosses reportedly went on to offer celebrity double fees to ensure the series can continue despite the corona virus pandemic
Maya has already appeared on TV screens hosting ITV’s Don’t Hate the Playaz and Channel 4’s The Circle.
It comes after Strictly Come Dancing bosses have reportedly gone on to offer celebrity double allowances to ensure the series can continue despite the coronavirus pandemic.
Sources claim that TV executives are keen for the series to ‘remain the jewel in the BBC’s crown’ and have already made contract proposals to attract a ‘great line-up’ for this year’s upcoming series.
Former contestants are said to have been given ‘five numbers’, with singer Anastacia and JLS star Aston Merrygold being the most expensive signings of the show for their respective stints in 2016 and 2017.

A TV insider told it The sun: ‘Coronavirus has made planning a TV show difficult, but producers want Strictly to remain the jewel in the BBC’s crown.
“Bookers have been told they can double what they paid for stars in the past.”
It comes after Maya recently made a virtual appearance for PrettyLittleThing’s online award show for influencers this month.
She received the Personality of The Year Award, but received it two days late after a confusion with the delivery.
American actor Terrence J, 37, hosted the awards live on PrettyLittleThing’s Instagram from his own living room and gongs to celebrate those in the celebrity and influencer industry.
Winners: Other winners at Sunday night’s awards included Jesy Nelson, Caitlyn Jenner, Paris Hilton and Amber Gill
Due to the pandemic, Maya and the other winners were forced to videotape their thanks after the glitzy ceremony was canceled according to government guidelines.
Maya took to her own Instagram story after unwrapping the pink unicorn-shaped prize and thanking her fans for voting.
As she tried to control her laugh, Maya said, “Good news! Thanks guys! Thank you to my mom and dad for raising me, all my aunts, my friends. ‘
She continued, “It’s really you, thanks for your vote. It’s really cute that you laugh at my jokes. Personality of the year 2020! ‘
Winner! Maya Jama won the Personality of The Year Award, but only received it in the post on Tuesday and therefore missed the livestream show
