Strictly Come Dancing: Christmas Special | Preview (BBC One)

Strictly Come Dancing returns to the ballroom for a Christmas special bringing festive fun, frolics and fab-u-lous dancing for all the family to enjoy on Christmas Day.

Join Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman as six stars take to the floor in a bid to be crowned Christmas Champion 2023. Will the judges be naughty or nice this year?

History broadcaster, best-selling author and entrepreneur Dan Snow was first to be announced, followed by BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent, who has covered some of the biggest news and sport stories of the last 20 years.

Actor Jamie Borthwick, best known for playing Jay Brown in the BBC’s flagship continuing drama EastEnders, was the third celebrity revealed and actress Tillie Amartey, who will be hitting our screens as Stace Neville in BBC One’s Waterloo Road, was fourth.

Former England International and current professional Rugby Union player Danny Cipriani was the fifth Strictly Christmas celeb announced and finally, singer songwriter Keisha Buchanan, a founding member of platinum selling, critically acclaimed, girl group Sugababes, (round) rounded out the line-up as celebrity number six.

Sam Ryder performs in the ballroom and there are two spectacular group routines guaranteed to bring Christmas cheer.

Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Specials airs Christmas Day on BBC One.
