Strictly Come Dancing bosses are reportedly planning a clear-out of professional dancers - with Ola and James Jordan top of the hit-list.

The Daily Star Sunday reports that their good reputation with viewers won't be enough to make up for a series of backstage rows.

The couple have already been axed from the show's live tour, and have been blasted by judge Craig Revel Horwood for their "selfish" reaction to the news.

"There could be a very different line-up this time next year," an insider told the paper. "Producers are keen to keep things fresh so quite a few faces could be dropped.

"It’s going to be brutal for some of them. But that’s the way it works when you’re on telly’s top show. The only ones who have been discussed are Ola and James at the moment. They might be liked by viewers but that may not be enough to save them."

It's also been alleged that Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and Alesha Dixon will all be invited back to the judging panel.

The source added: "The judging line-up is considered one of the best on the box. Strictly has learned from X Factor that changing the panel can see ratings drop."

Harry Judd won the latest series of the BBC hit last night.

Congrats Harry Judd!
