The former Spandau Ballet singer, 60, is even the favourite to lift the iconic Glitterball Trophy on the BBC dance show.
Leading bookmaker Coral has slashed its odds on Tony Hadley being a contestant on Strictly’s lineup to 2-1 from 6-1.
“If the rumours are true about Tony Hadley, we could be set for television gold this year on Strictly,” said Coral’s John Hill.
“The Spandau Ballet singer has had his odds slashed by more than half over the last 24 hours.
“This could suggest he is preparing to hit the dance floor,” he added
Tony now stands at a 25-1 odds to win the overall series of the iconic dance show.
While he has yet to comment on the rumours just yet, loyal Spandau Ballet fans reckon there’s a good chance that the legendary singer is set to burst some moves on the Strictly dance floor this year.
Taking to Twitter, they expressed their excitement at the prospect of seeing Tony show off his dance skills on the silver screen.
“Tony would literally be the most perfect contestant the show has ever had. He is such a likeable man. I hope it’s true!” gushed one admirer.
“Yes! I would actually pay good money to see him throw some shapes on the dance floor!” a second added.
While a third suggested: “Tony or Martin Kemp would honesty make the next series!”
The Strictly rumour comes after Tony blasted his ex bandmates for using their hit single Gold in an “embarrassing” washing powder commercial.
The star watched his brothers Martin and Gary Kemp in their spoof documentary BBC2’s Kemps: All True on Sunday night, but he wasn’t impressed.
Tony labelled Bold’s infamous washing powder ad as “bad taste” and revealed he would “rather watch Broadchurch” over their brand new show.
The singer quit the band in 2017 after a 2009 comeback and explained he wasn’t approached by the pair for their documentary.
Voicing his opinion on the cheesy Bold ad, Tony raged: “It’s embarrassing. I posted a social media disclaimer saying, ‘This was nothing to do with me’.”
Spandau Ballet split for good in 2019 after replacing former frontman Tony with Ross William Wild.
