BBC3 takes ‘Strictly’ to another level

June 4, 2009

There are plenty of programmes on TV that show celebrities dancing, skating or demonstrating some other skill.

This could be on ice, in the ballroom or wherever these events take place.

BBC3 is now planning a variation on this theme and the digital channel available on satellite BBC3 is going to take the Strictly Come Dancing format and turn it on its head, by running the show for contestants in wheelchairs.

The 6 x one hour series will pair up disabled wheelchair users, with able bodied celebrities, which will include M People singer Heather Small, Gladiators presenter Caroline Flack, former East Enders actress Michelle Gayle, Olympic swimmer Mark Foster, Hollyoaks actor Kevin Sacre and rugby player Martin Offiah.

The series is due to be aired later on in the year, although no date has been given.
