Strictly Dancers confirmed for 2019 as we wait on stars

March 5th, 2019 Home, Media & Journalism, News & Events, Press Release, Showbiz, Television

Strictly Come Dancing have revealed its professional dancers for the 2019 series, but we are still some time away from finding out who the stars lining up alongside them will be.

17 dancers have been confirmed with all of last year’s names returning, with the exception of the popular Pasha Kovalev – who announced his departure from the show earlier this year.

Neil Jones and his wife Katya will be back, despite the controversy from last year when she was caught kissing her star partner Seann Walsh.

Of those who are set to take part in 2019 – BBC presenter Fearne Cotton and Steph McGovern remain short prices, with the big mover in the market being Rylan Clark-Neal.

The one time reality star is now a hugely popular TV presenter and he is now amongst the favourites to take to the floor and battle for the Glitter Ball.

OddsMonkey spokesman Peter Watton commented: “The speculation about who will take part in Strictly is always fascinating and despite it still being six months until the launch, we all want to know who will be taking part.

“We know Chris Evans is already involved, and it seems Fearne Cotton and Steph McGovern are good bets to be welcomed from the BBC stable, although newsreader Huw Edwards has drifted out to 14/1 and it seems the public do not think he will be involved.

“The big move has seen Rylan Clark-Neal come into 4/1, and he would certainly be a hugely popular act.”
