Eeek! The first Strictly Come Dancing contestant is about to be revealed!

Who will it be?

Deep breaths all round. The Strictly Come Dancing 2018 celebrity contestant reveals are about to begin, and we can literally hardly contain ourselves. The BBC has let slip that the first name will be announced tomorrow morning on the station’s Breakfast Show, and the second, later that evening on one of our other favourite programmes, The One Show.


HELLO! featured the first interview with Karen and Kevin after their split

Here at HELLO! Towers we have been following all the rumoured and reported celebrity names excitedly, and have our top-secret list of anticipated contestants at the ready, to mark off the ones we were right about and lament over the ones who didn’t make it onto the show this year (we’ll be jumping onto Facebook to chat about this with you as the announcements are made).

Of course, as always, we’ll be leading the way with exclusive shoots and exciting interviews with everyone from the celeb contestants to Strictly judges, and of course our favourite Strictly pros. Through the years we’ve covered weddings, glamorous photoshoots, snuck backstage and even been sent video diaries from contestants as they get put through the gruelling schedule of rehearsals and heart-stopping live performances.
