Strictly Come Dancing reveals Presenters, Judges and Pros for 2023

Strictly Come Dancing has confirmed its on air talent for 2023.

As well as Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman returning as hosts, the judge line-up remains unchanged, with Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse, Anton Du Bake and Shirley Ballas all locked in for another year.

The pros won’t be joined by Cameron Lombard who has quit the show after just two years.  The South African Latin champion started competing when he was just six and has won 18 national titles across Ballroom and Latin to date.

Speaking of his exit from the show, Lombard wrote on Instagram:

“The last two years have been a blast. Thank you @bbcstrictly for the life changing opportunity and for the best experience any one could wish for. I will forever be grateful and I’ve loved every minute, danced on the world’s biggest stages, met the world’s best fans, performed for thousands of people as well as millions watching around the world and have made friends for life that I’ll cherish forever. I can’t wait to share with you some exciting future projects and plans. See you in the movies.”

The BBC have also confirmed that Dave Arch will be back as musical director with his band, and that the show’s annual trip to Blackpool is scheduled to go ahead this year.

Sarah James, Executive Producer, BBC Studios said:

“Excitement is already building for the 21st series of Strictly and we are so lucky to have the best team in the business both on and off camera. Our amazing presenters, incredible panel of judges and world class professional dancers are ready to bring the sparkle back to your screens this Autumn. We can’t wait!”

The celebrities taking part this year will be revealed in due course.

Strictly Come Dancing is a BBC Studios production for BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
