Strictly Come Dancing series 13 hasn’t even kicked off yet and professional dancer Brendan Cole is already being a meanie. The 39-year-old, who is one of Strictly’s longest-running professionals, has tweeted that he hopes the new celebrities “are all suitably petrified” ahead of their first day in the studio.
This year’s all-star line-up might not be completely confirmed yet – we only know 11 names – but they are all set to meet the professional dancers for the first time tomorrow, before rehearsals kick off.
The celebs and professionals traditionally perform a group dance at the beginning of the launch show – and the newbies will need to learn their moves sharpish.
Last day of pro rehearsals then tomorrow big day with new celebs.— Brendan Cole (@BrendanCole) August 25, 2015
Good Lineup (with a few characters)!
Hope you are all suitably petrified!😈
Cole, who has partnered the likes of Sunetra Sarker, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Victoria Pendleton and Natasha Kaplinksy, has also had his say on the celebrities set to compete in this year’s show, saying that he reckons it’s a “good lineup (with a few characters)!”
