Amy Dowden discusses the past role of new pro on Strictly Come Dancing.
STRICTLY COME DANCING has announced the addition of four more professional dancers to the BBC show later this year. Amy Dowden, on the other hand, provided some interesting details about new pro Kai Widdrington.
Gethin Jones of BBC Morning Live welcomed professional dancer Amy Dowden to discuss all things Strictly Come Dancing. The diva acknowledged her delight at the addition of the new cast members, as well as describing dancer Kai Widdrington’s previous involvement with the production.
Strictly Come Dancing, the BBC’s wildly popular dance show, will return in the autumn, and four more professionals have been added to the cast.
Jowita Przystal of Poland, Nikita Kuzmin of Ukraine, Cameron Lombard of South Africa, and Kai Widdrington of the United Kingdom are the new dancers.
Dancer Amy sat down with host Gethin and said that pro Kai already has a link to the BBC programme.
“I’m extremely pleased to welcome the new pros,” she said. “In fact, Kai danced a bit with us in the group numbers last year.”
“He performed the lead role with me in the Remembrance [Day] number,” the dancer said.
Kai “absolutely” has previous experience on the BBC dance show, according to Amy.
The pro couldn’t hide her delight at the new lineup, later saying, “It’s extremely thrilling.”
“I can’t wait to meet them and welcome them into our chaotic but wonderful family.”
After Strictly veteran Anton Du Beke and pro-dancer Janette Manrara left the show for new roles, the new dancers were announced.
After a successful guest appearance last year, Anton will be taking over Bruno Tonioli’s judging duties.
Due of the coronavirus epidemic, Bruno has been unable to return to the UK from Italy.
Janette will take over from Zoe Ball as host of the series’ sibling show, BBC Two’s It Takes Two, with co-host Rylan Clark-Neal.
Alja korjanec, Dianne Buswell, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Johannes Radebe, Karen Hauer, Katya Jones, Luba Mushtuk, Nadiya Bychkova, Nancy Xu, and Neil Jones will join Kai, Jowita, Nikita, Cameron, and Amy in the professional line-up for 2021.
Kai recently stated that he shares a flat with Giovanni, a fellow professional with whom he has known for years.
The new pro, who is 25 years old, recently competed on Dancing With The Stars Ireland.
Cameron is the reigning South African Latin champion, and Nikita has previously appeared on Let’s Dance Germany.
However, Kai isn’t the only one who has worked on Strictly, as Jowita has as well. “Brinkwire News in Condensed Form.”
