Strictly spin-off features disabled dancers in wheelchairs

Published: June 21, 2009

The stars of Strictly Come Dancing are reuniting for a groundbreaking spin-off – pairing up with ballroom dancers in wheelchairs.

Celebrities including ex-EastEnder Michelle Gayle and M People singer Heather Small will team up with disabled contestants for the new BBC3 series, provisionally titled Strictly Come Dancing On Wheels.

But unlike the original show, their partners will be members of the public who are also novices to the demanding world of wheelchair ballroom dancing.
