Four new professional dancers join the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing for upcoming 2022 series.

Four new professional dancers will star in the next series of Strictly Come Dancing, forming the BBC show’s biggest line-up to date.

European champion Vito Coppola, Chinese champion Carlos Gu, former British U21 champion Lauren Oakley and Latin dance champion Michelle Tsiakkas will take part in the show.

The celebrity dance competition will return in its 20th season this fall with judges Anton Du Beke, Motsi Mabuse, Craig Revel Horwood and head judge Shirley Ballas.

“I grew up watching Strictly,” said Birmingham-born Oakley, who was the leading lady to Giovanni Pernice and Anton Du Beke during her national tours, “always hoping that one day I could be part of the best show on TV, do what i love most.

“Now it’s happening, it doesn’t really seem real. I can’t wait to embark on this new adventure with sequins and to be a part of this incredible family.”

Coppola, who won the Italian version of Strictly in 2021, said: “I am very excited to become part of this family. I can’t wait to start this new adventure and challenge myself. Strictly sto arrivando!”

“I’m thrilled to join Strictly and very excited to get started,” said Gu, “It’s a new chapter in my life and a new challenge as well. I am absolutely ready to embark on this journey and shine.”

While Tsiakkas said, “Ever since I was a little girl, my dream has been to be a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing.

“I can’t believe my dream has come true. I’m so grateful to be a part of this incredible family and I can’t wait to step onto this magical dance floor and give it my all!”
