Strictly 2016 celebs have a WhatsApp group… and they talk about hoovers

It's all glamour in the world of Strictly Come Dancing


This year’s Strictly Come Dancing celebrities are already firm friends, setting up a giant WhatsApp group where they discuss… hoovers.


It’s like a little taste of Hollywood, isn’t it?

Dishing on their new giant group message TV host Laura Whitmore revealed the conversation is not all about the dancing.

“Will Young was talking about what hoover he was going to buy, he was buying a new blender…” she laughed, joining this year’s ballroom team after quitting her presenting gig on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here NOW! earlier this year.

“People are sending pictures of their dogs,” fellow contestant Melvin Odoom added, he too swapping an ITV spin-off show – The Xtra Factor – for a bash at glitterball glory.

“It’s the busiest group,” he laughed. “It’s busier than my family and they’ll talk about everything!”

“It’s weird,” he joked adding: “Anastasia is on my WhatsApp!”

Well guys, kee-eep texting!
