Tune in next Saturday (24th September) for a Strictly Come Dancing themed edition of Pointless Celebrities!
Alexander Armstrong and Richard Osman present a Strictly Come Dancing-themed edition of the unorthodox quiz, as the annual dance contest gets under way. Series 11 partners Sophie Ellis-Bextor and Brendan Cole team up once again, while series seven winner Chris Hollins joins forces with series nine contestant Russell Grant. Last year’s champion pairing Aliona Vilani and Jay McGuiness are reunited, and seasoned Strictly dancer Anton du Beke steps up to the podium with his professional partner Erin Boag.
Although Aliona is not part of the full series of Strictly this year, she was back to perform the magnificent Jive with Jay McGuiness on the Launch Show!
Aliona: I had an amazing seven years, Jay helped me raise the glitter ball a second time. I’ll miss it, but good luck to everyone – I’m sure it’ll be an amazing series.
Jay: Support each other, root for one another when you watch each other and enjoy it. I remember Caroline Flack said you won’t experience anything like it again – and she was right.
