The night’s theme was ‘Around the World’ which featured celebrity contestants competing in dances from countries over the globe. The opening number was Bollywood inspired, and the first time ever Bollywood has been featured on the programme.

“Everyone at BBC were so friendly, it was really fun meeting the Strictly dancers and the celebrities,” Mr Ratteray said. “The energy in the room was incredible! I had to wait to watch the video of the performance back, because iIdon’t remember actually performing. That’s how much of a rush it was.”
