New ‘Strictly’ contestants prepare for their wrecked marriages


Strictly Come Dancing have launched the 2019 group of celebrities whose marriages will imminently break up over the next few weeks.

The BBC will partner celebs with significantly more attractive dancers than their own stale life partners, and then watch the fireworks go off.

BBC Head of Light Entertainment, Peter Thape is responsible for keeping viewing figures at a peak.

‘We take egotistical people and make them intimately dance with each other; it’s hardly black magic,’ said Thape.

‘I’m surprised we only get a few marriage break downs a season,’ added Thape.
