It's Strictly for One Night Only!
During the past five months, 12 terrified technicians from the touring company of the West End hit have been taught to dance by 12 professional dancers from the cast.
All in aid of the BBC’s Children in Need Appeal, last night they then performed a one-off show at Southampton’s Mayflower.
They demonstrated their skills in front of a panel of judges including star of the stage Jason Donovan, a previous Strictly contestant himself, former EastEnders star Nigel Harman and Wendy Mae Brown – who plays Oda Mae Brown in the musical version of the Oscarw i n n i n g movie Ghost – as part of a grand charity fundraising gala.
Audiences in Southampton and across the UK have already raised more than £20,000 and it is hoped to top up the fund by tens of thousands of pounds during the show.
The evening, hosted by BBC South Today’s Sally Taylor, included traditional partner dancing, group sequences and all manner of genres including tap, ballet and hip hop.
