Strictly Come Dancing bosses have explained their action plan to get the show back on TV amid the coronavirus outbreak and it includes a measure that could fuel the notorious curse.

The show is due to return in the autumn, but the launch remains in doubt due to the coronavirus outbreak which has brought the TV industry to a standstill.

BBC bosses are determined to keep Strictly from falling victim to deadly bug and are currently working out ideas on how they can adhere to social distancing guidelines.

The beeb's Director of Content Charlotte Moore, told The Sunday Times measures being considered include coronavirus tests and glass screens.

They are also toying with the idea of quarantining the dancing couples together - meaning they would isolate together without seeing their families for the duration of the run.

Moore explained: "We’re looking at how that would work.

"Could you quarantine people? Can we test everyone before filming? Theres a lot of work being done. It's a big task."

The show is famous for dance partners getting together, and the idea of quarantining pairs together could lead to even more broken relationships.

Moore added that show bosses are considering quarantining the celebrities and their dance partners and testing their temperatures regularly.

Another plan they are eyeing is the installation of glass screens inside the studio.

The majority of TV and film productions in the UK have been shut down due to the pandemic.

Soaps including EastEnders and Coronation Street have remained on-air because they film weeks in advance, but they are all now running out of finished episodes.

The most high profile casualty of the outbreak was ITV's Love Island, which was canned last week as producers failed to find a way to make the show work.
