CLEAR THE DANCEFLOOR: ALISON HAMMOND TO FRONT BBC DANCE SHOW PILOT
A new dance competition from the makers of Strictly Come Dancing is to be piloted next month (February) for the BBC, and the host has reportedly been revealed.
Clear The Dancefloor is described as a 'new, high-energy, primetime dance show'. The pilot episode will record on Wednesday 15th February at Television Centre in London.
A teaser shares: "We’re looking for a fun-loving audience for the pilot episode, where – alongside our superstar judges - you’ll decide who stays and who goes from the competition."
The Sun reports that This Morning presenter Alison Hammond is being lined-up to host the pilot, which could be commissioned for a full series if successful. A source told The Sun: "The BBC thinks it’s a real coup to have scooped Alison for their shiny new show."
They continued: "She’s in hot demand right now and is typically seen as ITV talent. Alison has loads of energy and the viewers at home absolutely love her. She’s refreshing and fun and isn’t afraid to laugh at herself. Excitement around the new series is really building."
Audience tickets are available via SRO Audiences. More details and judges will be revealed in due course.
