Strictly Come Dancing Returns: Meet the First Contestants of 2023!

Dance, camera, action! The entertainment industry is buzzing with anticipation for Strictly Come Dancing‘s long-awaited return. The first batch of participants who will grace the dance floor in the exciting 2023 competition has been officially announced, ending months of rumors and building anticipation. Fans and spectators are anticipating the announcement of additional celebrities who will be joining this distinguished trio on the dance floor as the excitement grows. Meet the First 2023 Contestants as Strictly Come Dancing Returns with Much Excitement!

A roster this impressive promises to provide both entertaining and touching moments. The first trio of stars getting ready for the dance extravaganza is none other than the accomplished actor Amanda Abbington, the seasoned TV host and newsreader Angela Rippon, and the energetic cinema and theater performer Layton Williams.

Strictly Come Dancing 21: Meet Amanda Abbington

Amanda Abbington is embracing this new chapter with exciting enthusiasm. She is well known for her fascinating performances in TV dramas like Sherlock and Mr. Selfridge as well as important cinema appearances. Amanda, who overcame her own shyness and self-consciousness, sees her experience on Strictly as a great chance for personal growth and a chance to face her concerns. “I’m overjoyed to be participating in Strictly. The chance to get over my shyness and self-consciousness will be fantastic given how timid and self-conscious I actually am! Additionally, I get to learn to dance, which makes me quite excited, Amanda said with radiant joy.

Strictly Come Dancing 21: Angela Rippon

Angela Rippon, a well-known TV personality with a long history, adds to the varied mix. Angela’s return to the dancing community has special meaning because she hosted the first Come Dancing from 1988 to 1991. Her diverse talent is demonstrated by her excellent resume, which features programs like Rip-Off Britain, Top Gear, and The Holiday Programme. This will be quite an adventure for me, Angela said, with a tinge of both excitement and apprehension. An unsettling one, given that I’ll turn 79 soon. But I’m really looking forward to the challenge, and hopefully being able to learn to dance the Argentinian Tango!!”

Strictly Come Dancing 21: Layton Williams

Layton Williams completes this exciting trio of competitors. He is renowned for his outstanding stage and screen performances. Layton, who is well-known for playing the lead in Broadway sensations Billy Elliot and Everyone’s Talking About Jamie, adds a theatrical flavor to the dancing competition. He leads his own performing arts company, pursuing his passion for the arts by encouraging the next generation of artists. Layton is clearly excited about the challenge: “I’m over the moon to announce that I will compete in THE most prestigious dancing competition in the UK! Bring it to the Ballroom right away. I’m very eager to pick up new abilities from the greatest. Bring on the sequins… ALL the sequins!”

Even though rumors persist, stars like Katie Price and Angela Scanlon have sparked interest. A humorous photoshopped image of Katie Price dancing with Graziano Di Prima was even tweeted by Katie Price, who fueled the movement with the caption “#GETKATIEONSTRICTLY2023.”

The stage is set for another riveting season after the fierce competition of 2022, which saw Hamza Yassin win the Glitterball trophy with partner Jowita Przysta. The countdown to the big debut starts as the excitement builds with each new announcement. It will be thrilling to watch as these famous people take on the challenge, go beyond their comfort zones, and astound us with their improved dance moves.

The BBC stated in April 2023 that Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas, and Anton Du Beke would make a comeback as judges. In the fall of 2023, Strictly Come Dancing will make a comeback on BBC One and the BBC iPlayer. The exact air date and time are still to be determined. Keep checking back for additional information as the dance adventure progresses and the rhythm of Strictly Come Dancing once more fills our screens.
