The People's Strictly For Comic Relief

The BBC have announced the first details about The People's Strictly For Comic Relief.

The pre-recorded show will run on Saturday nights for four weeks in the lead up to Red Nose Day, with the winner announced as part of the live telethon on Friday 13th March.

The lucky, and worthy, members of the public who will get to live the Strictly dream are:

Phillip Barnett, director of Kids R Us, a theatre charity for children, which has raised over £2m and staged 70 productions.

Trishna Bharadia, an MS sufferer, campaigner and award-winning volunteer.

Anna Kennedy OBE, founder of schools for autistic children, whose sons have the condition.

Cassidy Litte, a former medic for the Royal Marines who lost his leg in an IED explosion while working in Afghanistan.

Heather Parsons, founder of Where There's A Will, a charity offering support to ICU patients and their families which was founded following her own stay in intensive care.

Michael Pattie, a fundraiser for meningitis charities, who has raised over £300,000 following the death of his son to the disease.

The show will be presented by Tess and Claudia. The first two episodes will introduce the participants and their stories. The third will show how the participants have got on in training, and the final episode will show their performances for the judges. The judges will score the performances, but only for guidance. A public vote will decide the winner.

Details of the professionals taking part will be announced in the coming weeks. The first show will be broadcast on Saturday 14th February.
