Anton du Beke has joined the Strictly Come Dancing 2015 judging panel for the People's Strictly.
He replaces usual panelist Craig Revel Horwood and will join Darcey Bussell, Bruno Tonioli and head judge Len Goodman on the judging panel for ‘The People’s Strictly for Comic Relief’.
The judges will feature in the final episode of the four-part series, when the six contestants and their professional dance partners will perform for the nation in the famous Strictly Come Dancing ballroom.
Craig Revel-Horwood, who is unable to take part in the studio show due to prior commitments in Australia, will also feature prominently in the series.
Anton du Beke said: “Having been a part of this wonderful show ever since series one, I know all too well what it’s like to perform to the nation on the famous Strictly Come Dancing dance floor. I’m delighted to be joining the judging panel in aid of Comic Relief, and I’m looking forward to giving my help and advice to the contestants and their professional partners."
The People’s Strictly for Comic Relief will see six everyday heroes and heroines fulfil every Strictly fan’s dream, as they go behind-the-scenes at the nation’s favourite show and embark on their very own Strictly experience.
The series will consist of four pre-recorded programmes, presented by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.
