All fans of dance, sequins and panels of flamboyant judges, rejoice – Be sure to come dance is back.
The Autumn Issue returns to BBC One in September, with Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman resuming their hosting duties.
After a trial run last year, Anton Du Beke makes his final move from dancer to judge this season as he now shares scoring responsibilities with Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood.
Of course, many professional dancers are in tow, as well as 15 celebrities showing off their skills in styles ranging from salsa to waltz. (You can see the full lineup here.)
One candidate many are hedging their glitter ball bets on is singer Fleur East.
But who exactly is she and how does she feel about being a part of it? Strict 2022?
East first hit television screens in 2005 as part of the girl group Addictiv Ladies The x factor. After being eliminated from the live studio shows in week one, the group disbanded.
However, this was far from the end of East X factor Trip; In 2014 she performed again as a soloist, where she impressed the jury and the audience with her energetic performances. Their rendition of Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk” reached number one on the UK iTunes Chart and resulted in the original track being released five weeks ahead of schedule.
Ultimately, East took second place and the song “Sax” landed at number three on singles.
After that she took part I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here! In 2018 he took fourth place. Since then she has continued to perform and release music.
Speaking of showing off your dancing skills StrictEast said in a statement: “I’m equally nervous and excited to be a part of this year’s Strict relay a message. I look forward to learning new skills and I want to absorb every moment of this magical experience. It is a great honor to be on the show after years of watching it with my father who loved it so much.
“Unfortunately, my father is no longer with us, but I know that he will be watching over the ballroom in spirit. I’m doing this to make him and my family proud and I can’t wait to put on my dancing shoes!”
Be sure to come dance will be broadcast on BBC One from September.
