Angela Rippon spills Strictly Come Dancing secret

A Strictly Come Dancing dancer has spoken out on what makes the BBC reality series special to him as the next line-up of famous faces prepare to take to the dancefloor.

Once again, the incomparable Strictly Come Dancing is making a comeback on Saturday, September 16, with a new batch of celebrities getting partnered up.

Among those hoping to impress the judges and audiences alike are presenter Les Dennis, Paralympic cyclist Jody Cundy, Coronation Street’s Ellie Leach and former Love Islander Zara McDermott, just to name a few.

There is plenty of excitement building for its return, especially since Strictly recently won the National Television Award for Best Talent Show.

And with the new series ready to begin, one of its professional dancers took to social media to express his love for it.

Graziano Di Prima has been one of the Strictly dancers since 2018 and has been paired up with Vick Hope, Judi Love and Kym Marsh.

All will be revealed as to who he is going to be matched with at the weekend but whoever his partner is, Graziano says he loves his job.

He wrote on social media: “We love our job, we are a big family, we do it for the love of dancing.

“It’s real, that’s why families love Strictly because we love our job and we do it with our heart.”

The Italian ballroom and Latin dancer will be returning this year alongside the likes of Kai Widdrington, Neil Jones, Lauren Oakley, Dianne Buswell and Giovanni Pernice.

One popular performer who sadly won’t be strutting her stuff for the 2023 series is Amy Dowden.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer in May and so is taking time away from the show during treatment.

Nevertheless, Amy has said she hopes to make an appearance at some point, whether that be on the main show or its spin-off It Takes Two.

The show must go on though and the celebrities cannot wait to learn some new moves.

Les Dennis opened up about his inspiration for signing up to Strictly because of an upcoming big birthday.

He explained: “I’m coming up to 70 this year and If I’m still in, I’ll have my 70th birthday on the show and I just thought, you know what, why not?

“I’m up for a challenge. I always do things that are outside my comfort zone.”

Strictly Come Dancing returns on Saturday, September 16, at 6.35pm on BBC One.
