The last dance for Camilla and Brendan
For the first time since their split three years ago, Camilla Dallerup and Brendan Cole will dance together one last time as the UK entrants for the first ever Eurovision Dance Contest in September on BBC One.
Despite living and dancing together for over nine years, tensions during the first season of BBC's Strictly Come Dancing caused the pair to separate both on the dance floor and as partners.
Invited to represent the nation in the new Eurovision Dance Contest, Brendan and Camilla will have to sweep aside their angst and hot-step around a ballroom for their last dance. Prepare to see a sensational performance with passion, zeal and real life tension as the couple let the sequins fly.
Join Graham Norton and Claudia Winkleman as they host this brand new Euro-show, set to sashay onto BBC One this autumn – take your partners for the sequinned splendour of the very first Eurovision Dance Contest.
