Strictly Come Dancing Line-Up 2020: All The Stars Get Strictly-Fied In New Publicity Shots

Radio 1's Clara Amfo, former home secretary Jacqui Smith and comedian Bill Bailey are all looking very glam.

The Strictly Come Dancing team has broken out the sequins, the spandex and the spray tans in the lead-up to this year’s series, with the new batch of celebrities striking a pose for their new publicity photos.

Strictly has unveiled the new publicity photos for this year’s series, with former home secretary Jacqui Smith, comedian Bill Bailey and Radio 1 DJ Clara Amfo all undergoing a Strictly transformation to get themselves dance floor ready.

EastEnders star Maisie Smith is also seen getting in the Strictly spirit in a bedazzled fringe dress and a pair of dance shoes, while former The Wanted performer Max George has already broken out the mesh (that didn’t take long at all, did it?).

Meanwhile, Olympic boxer Nicola Adams – who will make up one half of Strictly’s first ever competing same-sex partnership – can be seen in a bejewelled jacket and some trousers.

She told The Guardian last month that she expected she’d mostly be wearing suits on the show, commenting: “Dresses aren’t my thing.”

Strictly Come Dancing 2020: This Year's Contestants Get Their Glam On

You may notice that there are only 11 publicity shots at the moment, and that’s because celebrity number 12, singer HRVY, is currently self-isolating after testing positive for Covid-19.

He’s still expected to be taking part in this year’s pre-recorded launch, which will be filmed next week, pending a negative coronavirus test result.

This year’s Strictly launch will air on BBC One on Saturday 17 October, with the first live show debuting the following weekend.
