Press Release

Peter Andre to première new single on Strictly Come Dancing

The BBC has today announced the debut of singer Peter Andre's new single, Defender, on the brand-new series of Strictly Come Dancing, on Saturday 16 October.

Following in the footsteps of Robbie Williams and Gary Barlow, who kicked off the series, Peter will be performing in front of the packed Strictly Come Dancing audience, both in the studio and at home.

Peter Andre said: "I am so honoured to be performing on Strictly Come Dancing – I love the show so much.

"It seems an ideal show for the first performance of my new single, Defender, especially as the video is based around a very complex and testing dance routine. It'll be great to première it in front of some professional dancers!"
