Dance Dance Dance, is a brand new primetime entertainment series from ITV that will celebrate the most iconic pop video and dance movie sequences of all time.
Jess Wright has spoken about ITV’s latest showbiz show which brings celebrities, together with a partner of their choice, together to reimagine dance performances from iconic pop videos and dance movie sequences. Talking about taking on Christine Aguilera’s Dirrty, Jess said:
“Yes, my solo dance is Christina Aguilera’s song Dirrty. I’m doing the full on chaps and bra. It’s my favourite dance, I absolutely love it! I’m scared but it’s the style of dancing that’s my favourite. I just channel Christina in that video and try to be as sassy and sexy as possible. I’m going to be on national TV in chaps so that’s why I am trying to go to the gym a lot. It’s going to show a sexy side to me so it’ll be good. I’m just going to go for it and be confident.”
Hosted by Alesha Dixon and Will Best the series will employ amazing state of the art special effects to re-enact legendary routines from Michael Jackson’s Bad and Madonna’s Vogue to Beyoncé’s Crazy in Love and Britney Spears’ Baby One More Time.
“I really hope my dad doesn’t watch me perform [Dirrty] live! I don’t think he’s actually coming to the studio that week, which is a relief. We have a family WhatsApp group and I sent a video of me doing the dance with the professional backing dancers, my dad hasn’t commented on it! My mum loved it, she was so happy!
In a celebration of dance and music, each week the celebrities and their partners will perform and be marked by a panel of three expert judges. World famous choreographer, Tina Landon, has created routines for global superstars including Michael and Janet Jackson, Britney Spears, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, and Ricky Martin. Dancer, choreographer and judge on Dance Dance Dance across Europe, Timor Steffens has worked with Michael Jackson, Madonna, Beyoncé and Usher; and finally dancer, choreographer and creator of BGT winning street dance crew, Diversity, Ashley Banjo, completes the trio.
Celebrities taking part are Coronation Street and Wild at Heart actress Lucy Jo Hudson, TOWIE star Jessica Wright, JLS singer JB Gill, EastEnders actor Jonny Labey and Emmerdale’s Fiona Wade.
Jess Wright finally ponders whether she should have performed with brother Mark.
“Oh my god, no! Never! Mark can’t dance! He did really well on Strictly, obviously he got to the final and stuff, but he’s no good at this kind of dance. Anyway, we would row terribly, we’d absolutely kill each other!”
