Strictly The Professionals

Strictly The Professionals



The relationship between professional dancer and celebrity is a constant source of fascination – especially in the media where the “Strictly curse” has generated endless gossip about blossoming romances and broken marriages.

But what we don’t really know is how on earth the professionals transform someone who clearly has two left feet into a reasonable mover on the dance floor. Or sometimes not.

Jeremy Vine, Ed Balls and Ann Widdecombe are among those explaining how they were kept on their toes for the show, while the likes of AJ Pritchard and Katya Jones talk about how they first got into the profession and what it’s taken for them to succeed.


A special programme focusing on Strictly Come Dancing's professional dancers, looking back at their journeys to reach the ballroom and some of their best moments from the show. The programme also offers viewers a behind-the-scenes look at life on Strictly, revealing some of the show's most guarded secrets.
