Strictly Come Dancing 2012: Darcy Bussell given course in ballroom dancing!

Darcy Bussell (Strictly Come Dancing)

New Strictly Come Dancing judge Darcy Bussell has been given a course in ballroom dancing.

The ballet star was announced earlier this year as the new Strictly judge, replacing Alesha Dixon.

But while there's no doubting Darcy's talent for ballet, bosses are worried her lack of ballroom knowledge could cause viewers to switch off.

According to The Sun today, producers have therefore given Darcy a course in ballroom dancing to bring her up to speed.

A source told the newspaper today: “Darcey is a high profile signing for the Beeb.

"They don’t want her getting tripped up by not knowing what she’s talking about.”

The new series of [cat]Strictly Come Dancing[/cat] begins on BBC One in September.
