Six Blue Peter presenters past and present will compete in Strictly Come Dancing’s Children in Need special next month, and now it’s been announced which of the Strictly pros will be partnering Konnie Huq, Tim Vincent, Anthea Turner, Diane-Louise Jordan, Mark Curry and current presenter of the CBBC show Radii Chinyanganya.
Meanwhile former Catchphrase host Curry added: “Blue Peter, Strictly Come Dancing and BBC Children in Need are some of the most famous programmes in television history. I’m proud to be a part of all three of these legendary shows by taking part in our Strictly special.”
Diane-Louise Jordan, who hosted the show between 1990 and 1996, bravely added: “I’m a former Trustee for BBC Children in Need as well as a massive Strictly fan. Blue Peter will always be my first love. So to have an opportunity to combine all three is thrilling! It’s also terrifying because (as all who know and love me will testify) I can’t dance… But as it’s for charity I gladly accept the challenge!”
