Strictly Sport Relief

Strictly Sport Relief

Bruce and Tess will be hosting a very special edition of Strictly Come Dancing

[15 January 2008]

Some of our favourite sporting stars from series gone by will be returning to the studio to show off their moves as Sport Relief does Strictly Come Dancing.

The sporting stars will be joined by five raw-recruits and will be keen to show the judges that they have kept on dancing.

Sport Relief 2008 is all about challenging yourself, friends, family and colleagues to do something sporty and raise cash.

The ultimate challenge for the public is doing the Sainsbury's Sport Relief Mile where hundreds of thousands of people across the UK will take to the streets and go the distance for Sport Relief.

Last year David Walliams swam the Channel. This year participants can set their own challenge by having the choice of running 1, 3 or 6 Miles and can search for their nearest mile at

The possibilities are endless; you could even stage your own edition of Strictly and donate the entry fees or ticket sales to Sport Relief.

As ever the studio will be sparkling after getting a very special Sport Relief makeover and the competition will be fierce but friendly.

Well, as friendly as it can be when series four winner Mark Ramprakash and runner-up Matt Dawson resume their simmering rivalry.

Our esteemed panel of judges will ensure order though with Len Goodman Arlene Phillips and Craig Revel Horwood on hand to give their verdicts.

Denise Lewis, Roger Black and series three winner Darren Gough make up the quintet of returning sports stars.

EastEnders star Kara Tointon, Hollyoaks' Gemma Bissix and the first lady of British musical theatre Elaine Paige will be pairing up with them.

Olympic long-jumper Jade Johnson and ex-football heart throb David Ginola make up our five new faces.

Make sure you're watching on March 14th to find out who wins Sport Relief does Strictly Come Dancing.
