Lee reportedly let slip in an interview with Good Morning Britain that Big Sam will be announced as a contestant shortly, along with Made In Chelsea star Jamie Laing and TV presenter Anneka Rice.
“They are going to announce the first three people on a show called The One Show,” he said.
“It’s going to be Sam Allardyce, Jamie Laing and Anneka Rice.”
Allardyce, who has been out of a job since leaving Everton at the end of the 2017/18 season, was rumoured to be in line for a place on the show after holding talks with BBC bosses in April.
He wouldn't be the first person from the world of football to appear on Strictly: Peter Schmeichel, John Barnes, Peter Shilton and Robbie Savage have all given it a go in the past and none finished higher than sixth out of 14 contestants.
