Strictly Come Dancing 2021 announces ninth and tenth celebrities
Come dance strictly confirmed Tilly Ramsay and Greg Wise as the ninth and tenth celebrities added to the 2021 series lineup.
The pair was unveiled on This morning today (August 11).
Tilly – chef, TV presenter and daughter of Gordon Ramsay – said she was “slightly terrified” but couldn’t wait to be on the show.
“I am so excited and grateful to join the Strictly family! ”she shared.“ I’m always up for new fun challenges and this will be my biggest adventure yet.
“I’m going to put my heart and soul into it and can’t wait to put on my dancing shoes and show my dad how it’s really done! Bring the glitz and glamor and glitter.”
Greg – actor and writer – said his wife, Dame Emma Thompson, was “foolishly excited” that he was heading to the dance floor and explained that he was going on the show for his late sister.
“My sister-in-law was a huge disco queen,” he said. “She left our world almost exactly five years ago in a coffin of sparkling balls. This is for her – my gorgeous diva sister, who would have been ecstatic for her little brother to do this.
“I’m going to channel her, because her brother can’t dance, but I’m delighted to dip my toes, knees, hips and arms in this wonderful world, and I hope to make her proud and obviously make her laugh.”
Tilly and Greg join the old one Coronation Street star Katie McGlynn and BBC presenter Dan Walker, who were announced on Tuesday August 10th.
