striclty mystery 1The BBC has announced the first ever People’s Strictly Come Dancing – a programme in which ordinary people, rather than celebrities, take part in the hit dancing show.

Opening the Strictly dancefloor to the public, the BBC asks you to nominate everyday heroes and heroines to take part in their very own televised Strictly experience. They’re looking for inspiring people who change the lives of others: charity workers, foster parents, people who have made the world a better place. And of course, they should be Strictly fans!

The show will be part of next year’s Red Nose Day campaign, raising money for Comic Relief. It will be broadcast on BBC One in the lead-up to the Red Nose Day night of television in March 2015.

To nominate your hero or heroine, please email to ask for an application form.
