Strictly Come Dancing is shaping up for its biggest year ever, with fourteen becoming fifteen as another celebrity dancer is added to the line-up – and that means more professional dancers too.
Four brand new pros are set to join the show alongside series regulars Brendan Cole, Anton du Beke, James Jordan, Robin Windsor, Artem Chigvintsev, Pasha Kovalev, Ola Jordan, Kristina Rhianoff, Natalie Lowe and Karen Hauer.
Before they start whipping those celebs into shape, here’s a little peek at their dancing CVs…
Most recently seen headlining Broadway’s Burn the Floor and travelling with the show on its World Tour of 20 countries, Russian-born Latin dancer Anya’s ready to make her Strictly debut.
Not that she doesn't already have SCD connections, having partnered Strictly’s own Pasha Kovalev to the finals of the US Open Ballroom Champsionship several times and appeared on American Strictly-style series So You Think You Can Dance.
Anya’s also been invited to perform at the Emmys, the Oscars and starred in TV shows True Blood and Bones.
