The buzz of BBC Strictly is in the air

Who are the celebrities taking part this year ??? I know how the celebrities are feeling bursting with excitement ready to be part of the Strictly bubble!

2 years ago I was lucky enough to be chosen from 11000 entries from the very first and only People Strictly for Comic Relief. I was fit to burst since I have been a fan of Strictly since it very first hit our screens as Come Dancing with the late Terri Wogan.

The BBC four part series began in Feb 2015 and culminated with the live final on Comic Relief Night. My dance partner was revealed live as the lovely Robin Windsor. We hit it off straight away our dance chosen for us was the Charleston and a fast one it was too. I could not believe it when the judges Bruno, Len, Darcey and Anton Du Beke stood in for Craig since he was in the US.

You can see our routine here

I still keep in contact with the other 5 Peoples Strictly contestants Phil, Heather, Trishna, Cassidy and Micheal. We have supported each others charity events to help raise funds and are now good friends.

I am excited to share I will be reporting on my thoughts on the routines each week and cannot wait to see the beautiful costumes that Vicky Gill and her team create when BBC Strictly launches in September.
