Fact title Fact data

Say ciao to smooth mover Graziano, who joined our Strictly family in 2018.

In his first year Sicilian-born dancer made dancefloor debut with radio DJ Vick Hope. They navigated the world of sparkles, Jives and intense rehearsals as newbies together, before leaving the competition in week five.


24-year-old Graziano is an Italian Latin Champion, and has also represented Belgium at the World Championships and made the top 24 at the under 21s Latin World Championships. For the past three years he's been touring the world with dance company Burn The Floor, so he's more than ready to step up to the challenges of Strictly.

“This is my dream come true!" he said. "I still can’t believe I will be one of the professional dancers on Strictly Come Dancing. I can’t wait to give all of myself on the dance floor!”

We can't wait to see you in action, Graziano.
