She makes up one half of the presenters on Strictly Come Dancing, appearing alongside Claudia Winkleman every year.
And Tess Daly, 52, has revealed on Instagram that fittings for the show have already begun, as she donned a bronze shimmery jumpsuit for a behind the scenes snap.
Her costume fitting comes as news surfaced that Strictly bosses are insisting on ‘Covid-19 bubbles’ on the show this year despite restrictions easing across the country.

The model stood tall in the Seventies-inspired one-piece, which boasted pleated lamé fabric, a flattering belt across her waist and a dramatic cape which she wrapped around herself.
The blonde beauty smiled as she posed up a storm in her mirror selfie, captioning the picture: ‘Strictly fittings are currently underway’.
She continued: ‘We’re 3 looks in and this little number might not be making the cut but she was too sparkly not to share’.
Back on! Tess is set to appear back on our screens next month, with the show reportedly still enforce Covid-19 bubbles for its professional dancers, despite lockdown restrictions easing
Tess is set to appear back on our screens next month, and the show will reportedly still enforce Covid-19 bubbles for its professional dancers, despite lockdown restrictions easing.
Wanting to minimise all potential risks, Strictly bosses have requested the show’s dancers all stay at a London hotel in ‘bubbles’, according to The Sun.
Such bubbles were put into practice for last year’s Strictly series amid lockdown, while the show’s professionals have been busy pre-recording group dances ahead of this year’s launch.

Lockdown restrictions ended on July 19, meaning all legal restrictions on social contact were removed.
Social distancing guidelines and rules regarding face coverings were lifted, with limits on socialising also removed.
However, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has advised everyone to proceed with caution, with Strictly bosses seemingly taking necessary steps for next series in case of a possible coronavirus outbreak.
As well as forming bubbles ahead of the series, the professional dancers will film most of their group routines in advance and only a limited number of guests will be allowed in the studio audience.

Fans, along with friends and family of the celebrity contestants, will be allowed back into Elstree studios to watch the live shows, but only in small numbers.
MailOnline has reached out to a spokesperson for Strictly for comment.
Last year, Strictly bosses brought bubbles and close contact cohorts into play in order to ensure the safety of the contestants, dancers and crew during filming.
Each dancing couple formed an exclusive support bubble – meaning one half of the bubble was a single adult household living alone and the other could remain with their household, allowing them to have close contact with one another.
Close contact cohorts were also introduced and work similarly to support bubbles, but included regular and routine testing for coronavirus. Each couple was put into a close contact cohort and could not form a cohort with anyone else during the competition.

Despite the measures in place, Covid still wreaked havoc with the series, as same-sex couple Katya Jones and Nicola Adams were forced to leave the competition, after Katya tested positive for the virus.
The series was won by Bill Bailey and Oti Mabuse, with EastEnders star Maisie Smith, singer HRVY and Jamie Laing all finishing as runners-up.
Strictly is due to return for its 2021 series next month and this year, the BBC ballroom show will see the likes of Tom Fletcher, Ugo Monye, Robert Webb, AJ Odudu, Rhys Stephenson and Nina Wadia compete for the glitterball trophy.
Also joining the line-up is Loose Women’s Judi Love, Adam Peaty, Rose Ayling-Ellis, Sara Davies, Greg Wise, Tilly Ramsay, Katie McGlynn, BBC Breakfast host Dan Walker and John Whaite.
Of this year’s contestants, John will make history as part of Strictly’s first all-male coupling while EastEnders star Rose is the first ever deaf contestant to appear on the show.
Professionals confirmed to return next series include Giovanni Pernice, who is now dating Love Island’s Maura Higgins, Gorka Marquez, Amy Dowden and Dianne Buswell.
Karen Hauer, Katya Jones, Neil Jones and Graziano Di Prima will also return, while four new dancers will join them.
Kai Widdrington, Nikita Kuzmin, Cameron Lombard and Jowita Przystal, who starred on The Greatest Dancer, where fellow pro Oti was her mentor, will be making the mark on the dance floor.
Strictly is due to return to BBC on September 11.
