Former Brookside actress and radio presenter Jennifer Ellison has joined the Lifetime channel for a new dance series.
In the lead up to the brand new series, Dance Mums With Jennifer Ellison, Abby Lee Miller the star of the American version Dance Moms, travels to the UK to teach Jennifer Ellison some tricks of the competitive dance world and show her how it’s done, stateside. The one-off UK special, Dance Mums: Abby Meets Jennifer, will air on Monday 13th October at 8.30pm, on Lifetime®
There are tears of joy when Abby walks in to surprise the UK mums and girls. They love Abby, but will they love her by the end of the day? Abby immediately gets to work – putting the girls through their paces, testing them, finding their strengths and their weaknesses and seeing if they’re up to Abby Lee’s exacting standard.
Jennifer is pleased with her surprise, but wants to make sure the girls perform to the best of their abilities so they can prove to Abby that the Brits have got just as much talent as their American counterparts. But when they don’t step up to the mark there’s hell to pay! Some seriously stern words from Jennifer and the girls are ready to perform a special routine for Abby.
As the day draws to a close Abby decides to select her favourites from Jennifer Ellison’s Dance Team – but who will be top of her dance pyramid? This is 30 minutes of pure adrenalin-fuelled Dance Mums action. Buckle up for one hell of a ride! The season 4 finale of Dance Moms follows on the same day at 9pm.
Dance Mums: Abby Meets Jennifer Monday 13th October at 8.30pm, on Lifetime® (Sky 156 / Virgin 242 / TalkTalk 490).
