Strictly Come Dancing 2020: Who and What’s New!
In light of the pandemic, to fit the guidelines set in place, Strictly Come Dancing are having to make a few adjustments for this year’s series. In order for the stars to compete they have all been asked to self isolate beforehand ensuring everything can be carried out safely.
So what changes have been made, we hear you ask? This week we’re giving you all the goss when it comes to Strictly, we even have a list of the rumoured celebrity line up!
According to recent news, the celebrity and their professional dance partners will be rehearsing in an almost empty studio which will be a first for the show. Cutbacks are having to be made to reach the social distancing guidelines which means we say goodbye to a live audience. The absence of the audience has created a worry that the lack of atmosphere will take away the excitement from any future performances.
Live Pop Star Performances Cancelled
The Strictly Come Dancing dance floor has been the stage for huge pop sensations such as Taylor Swift and Lewis Capaldi so it is seen to play a huge factor in the show. It is said to be under discussion as to whether or not the performances should be scrapped.
Usually the Strictly series runs from September to December but this year the dates have changed. You can expect it to kick off on the 24th of October and will be shorter than normal by finishing a few weeks earlier.
As the running time of the series is being reduced there is no longer need for a huge amount of competitors so the line-up has been reduced.
Group dances have become a weekly thing on Strictly, kicking off the show! 2020 is seeing the cancellation of these and also of the ‘chemistry circle’ which is used to pair the professional dancers with their celebrity partners.
Due to the lack of audience, the front of house crew members won’t be necessary. There will also be less security due to the lack of audience.
So who’s taking part this year? Love Island star Molly-Mae Hague, comedian Alan Carr and TV presenter Maya Jama are just a few of the names under discussion for the 2020 line-up. We have the full rumoured list for you below!
Strictly bosses have had to make a number of changes this year in order to make sure everything is being carried out safely so we’re looking at a very different show!
Will Strictly make a strong return with all these changes? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
