Strictly Come Dancing 2016 – Christmas Special Lineup

The BBC last night revealed the 6 participants to be participating in this year’s Christmas Special and they are all Ghosts of Strictly Past. So just who is participating? Here is the list:

Denise Lewis – Denise was a runner up to Jill Halfpenny way back in series 2 of Strictly

Ainsley Harriot – Ainsley was one of last year’s “comedy” contestants before being eliminated in week 5

Pamela Stephenson – Pamela has the honour of being the oldest contestant to make the final which she did in the 2010 series eventually finishing in 3rd

Gethin Jones – These days he is a reporter on It Takes Two but Gethin also took part in the 2007 series taking 3rd place

Frankie Bridge – Frankie was a runner up in the 2014 series losing out on the glitterball to Caroline Flack

Melvin Odoom – First to be eliminated this series after losing out in one of the most controversial Strictly moments ever when he was eliminated on public vote alone without a chance to save himself after Anastacia was unable to Dance Off, Melvin has now been given a 2nd chance to show the public his moves

Which pros the participants will be partnered with and the dances they will be performing are still to be announced.
