The wait is over! No more feeling like the over-eager neighbour who’s put their Christmas lights up at Halloween; it’s time to get your sparkles out, because it IS officially Strictly Season!
Darcey Bussell ended weeks of speculation as she exclusively revealed the full Strictly Come Dancing 2013 line-up on The One Show. And what a line-up it is this year! Celebrities from the worlds of pop, TV, theatre, news, radio, sport, fashion and film are all waiting on the tips of their toes to bring you some fantastic, and others more fledgling, dancing!
From the glamorous world of fashion are International Designer Julien Macdonald and Model and TV Presenter Abbey Clancy. Songstress Sophie Ellis-Bextor brings her pop star shine to the show and TV’s Hairy Biker, Dave Myers, will hopefully bring some food... foxtrots we mean...
We hope Vanessa Feltz and Susanna Reid showcase footwork as sure and steady as their BBC Broadcasting skills, while sporting legends Ben Cohen and Tony Jacklin aim to stretch themselves through an unfamiliar form of exercise – dance.
With A View to Kill…er dance moves is former Bond girl Fiona Fullerton, and from the hospital wards to the school corridors, BBC Drama stars Patrick Robinson and Mark Benton join the class of 2013. A long way from Weatherfield and Hollyoaks, soap stars Natalie Gumede and Ashley Taylor Dawson will be showing us what they’ve got. Fresh from the Dragons’ Den, Deborah Meaden means business, while Countdown co-presenter Rachel Riley will be keeping a keen eye on the scoreboards.
Let us know what you think of our Strictly 2013 line up.
