The dancers taking part this year are a mix of business people, teachers, fitness instructors, a nurse and Nugent staff.

One of the dancers, Frances Malloy, CEO of Health at Work, said, “I’m excited and nervous to be taking part, my dance partner, Ben is amazing, it’s a huge challenge but for a great cause.”

Normandie Wragg – Nugent CEO, and judge, said of last year’s Strictly Nugent:
