They added: “Her collection will launch in March.”

Express.co.uk has contacted a representative for Saffron for comment.

The YouTube star is yet to address the reports, but took to Instagram today to share various outfits she likes from a clothing site.

She posed in a figure-hugging pink top and jeans with the caption: “As I’m still unwell, I thought I would show you all my wish list.

“I’ve spent the last few days basically rinsing my bank account and thought you guys might wanna know the bits I got if ur in the same boat.”(sic)

Saffron went on to share various clothing items such as a fur coat, joggers and blazer.

The Strictly star’s new move comes following her stint on Strictly Come Dancing last year, where she danced with AJ Pritchard.

The dancing duo missed out on the final after performing a Samba and losing a dance-off to Karim Zeroual and Amy Dowden.

AJ and Saffron admitted they feared dancing a Samba as the professional dancer and his previous celebrity partners have been voted out of the show after performing the energetic number.

The dancer has previously referred to his bad luck on the show as the “Samba curse”.

In a recent interview with Express.co.uk, AJ said he would prefer to perform the dance in the earlier stages of the show if he gets a partner this year.

“It’s a tearful moment, I’m doing that [the Samba] on [my] tour as a happy dance,” he divulged.

“But in reality on Strictly, I go home, don’t I? I should do it in week one when you can’t get kicked off or eliminated.”

When asked if he will be pitching the idea to producers, he replied: “I think that’s what I’ll do hopefully this year.”

AJ and Saffron previously said they tried to avoid doing the Samba routine.

She told The Sun: “We tried to get out of dancing the Samba but they wouldn’t let us.”

Upon leaving the show, the blogger told host Tess Daly: “I’ve had the absolute time of my life and it’s all down to him [AJ].

“It’s been amazing. I’d like to thank AJ so much, when I look at what I was like on week one I was so embarrassed and shy.

She added: “He’s really taken me out of my shell. Thank you so much for everything.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One later this year.
