Talking about the special edition, BBC Controller Charlotte Moore said:

“BBC One is the TV home of ballroom dancing, so where better to see deserving, real-life heroes and heroines experience the sparkling joy of Strictly – and all for such a great cause in Comic Relief.”

The six contestants will undergo four weeks of training before performing in the all-important Strictly ballroom in front of the nation.

Kevin Cahill, Comic Relief Chief Executive, also said:

“The people have always been at the heart of Red Nose Day, and The People’s Strictly on BBC One takes one step further.

“Having watched well-known faces go through the heart-warming journey on Strictly, I can’t wait to see members of the public having this amazing opportunity. It mixes fun and fundraising in equal measure.”
