Strictly Come Dancing fans have claimed they’ve figured out Zara McDermott will be paired with Graziano Di Prima.

While all 15 celebrities have been confirmed for the BBC ballroom show, including the likes of Amanda Abbington and Angela Rippon, the professional dancer pairings have not been revealed.

However, social media users have been putting their detective skills to the test and deduced that Zara, 26, will be dancing alongside Graziano, 29, because they are of complementary heights.

It’s thought the Love Island star is around 5’7, while Graziano is reported to be around 5’11.

‘Zara & Graziano for me would be great they match height as well,’ one BBC watcher predicted, while another said: ‘I think you’re quite tall so maybe Graziano or Johannes [Radebe] (I adore them all!).

A third commented: ‘I think you’ll love all the fast dances and be partnered with Graziano.’

Zara, who has made history by becoming the first former Love Island contestant on Strictly, previously warned her dance partner they had their ‘work cut out.’

She also gave an update on what the Strictly 2023 cast has been up to so far on a recent Instagram video.

The documentary maker said: ‘We had our first dance masterclass session the other day.

‘We all met each other. We even met the pros which was amazing. Seeing them dance, I was like… wow.’

It comes after reports that Zara’s determined to become Strictly’s sexiest-ever contestant, giving Ekin-Su Cülcüloğlu on Dancing On Ice a run for her money.

It’s been said that to help Zara achieve her target she has briefed the wardrobe team and requested bold and daring outfits.

Zara joins soap stars past and present on the dancefloor, including former Coronation Street star Ellie Leach, EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier, former EastEnders star Nigel Harman and Waterloo Road star Adam Thomas.

The Strictly line-up also includes Paralympic champion Jody Cundy and former British number one tennis player Annabel Croft as well as BBC Asian Network’s Breakfast Show host Nikita Kanda and Bad Education star Layton Williams.
