Maura Higgins is tipped to join Strictly Come Dancing after they have lifted the ban on reality TV contestants taking part. Maura did very well on Dancing on Ice, pulling in large ratings, and the BBC are also rumoured to be looking for contestants with no ties as there could be a quarantine/isolation rule meaning contestants could be away from their loved ones for months on end.
