The BBC in the early hours of this morning revealed the professional dancers who will be taking part in the 2019 series of Strictly Come Dancing. Barring the departure of Pasha announced a few weeks ago there isn’t really any other major changes to speak of with the following pros all returning from previous series
AJ Pritchard, Aljaž Škorjanec, Amy Dowden, Anton Du Beke, Dianne Buswell, Giovanni Pernice, Gorka Marquez, Graziano Di Prima, Janette Manrara, Johannes Radebe, Karen Clifton, Katya Jones, Kevin Clifton, Luba Mushtuk, Nadiya Bychkova, Neil Jones and Oti Mabuse all return as professionals in 2019 although with 17 pros announced it is probable that not all of them will be paired with a celebrity as usually 15 celebrities take part in a series.
Speaking to the BBC Sarah James, Executive Producer, BBC Studios had this to say about the line up: “We are delighted that this year’s line-up of professional dancers for Strictly Come Dancing is full of familiar faces and fan favourites. This amazing cast of incredibly talented world class professional dancers have provided Strictly with some of its most memorable moments over the years and with more exciting announcements to come, plus world renowned choreographer Jason Gilkison also returning to the team, Strictly 2019 promises to continue to wow viewers with unforgettable performances as we welcome this dazzling line up of pros back to the ballroom.”
