Radio Times magazine: Meet the stars of Strictly Come Dancing 2012

Plus Matt Smith on the departure of Doctor Who's companions, Melissa George talks about her new TV series, Ian Hislop explores Brits' emotions, and much, much more...


We’re gearing up for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing in this week’s Radio Times with an exclusive photo-spread and brand new interviews with all of this year’s celebs and professionals.


And we’ve produced two different covers for the new issue too – one with the boys and one with the girls. So pick up your favourite (or buy both!) and get ready for the best introduction to Strictly 2012 on the newsstand.

Plus, don’t miss your chance to vote for the 2013 National Television Awards. You’ll find the form inside this week’s issue!

Also this week:

Doctor Who star Matt Smith is on hand to discuss the sad exit of companions Amy and Rory, Private Eye editor Ian Hislop joins us to chat about the lack of stiff upper lips among modern-day Brits, and we talk to former Home and Away star Melissa George about her new TV series, Hunted.

The women in Kenny Everett’s life share their recollections of the eccentric comedian, Celia Imrie discovers some shocking secrets about her family’s past and the Reverend Richard Coles remembers the day he invited Rev star Tom Hollander into his pulpit.


And our regular columnists are back with their weekly doses of insight and enthusiasm. Sarah Millican holds forth about her love for Sir Bruce Forsyth, Alison Graham gives James Nesbitt a similarly positive appraisal, and Andrew Collins explores the world of high school films. It’s all in this week’s dual-cover Radio Times, available now priced £1.40.
