'We know the names.' Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman 'excited' about Strictly Come Dancing line-up


Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman have taken to Twitter to reveal some big news: they now know all the names of who will appear in the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing. Although the presenters couldn't give any hints as to who would be dancing on the show, they promised that the new group of celebrities were "good."

Posting the video on BBC One's Twitter account, the pair looked excited as Claudia began by saying: "Right here's the big news boys and girls," before Tess chimed in, saying: "We know the names. ALL of them. And they're good. They're good! We're excited."

Claudia then joked that although they knew, they couldn't tell fans of the show just yet, saying: "but that's all you're getting because we can't tell you anything."

The 44-year-old presenter hinted that there is one star she was particularly excited about, saying: "There's one name that made me scream," before Tess joked: "When you found out you screamed out loud. You got very excited. She screams a lot."

They continued to list the sort of people who will be appearing in the show, saying: "There's something for everyone there's young, there's old, there's small, there's tall, there's cuddly, there's abrasive. Actually there's not abrasive. I miss the abrasive ones.

"There's cute, there's gorgeous, there's hot, there's edible."


Tess finally promised: "You're going to be pleased with the clever people who booked them."

Rumours have been rife as to which celebrities will be taking part in the immensely popular dance show, with Cheryl, Will Young and Daisy Lowe among those mentioned to possibly be taking part.
