BBC announced today the full line up of sixteen Strictly professionals that will take to the ballroom floor with a new batch of celebrities this autumn.
So, who are the newbies?
Russian-born Gleb began dancing at the age of eight and is now an international star dancer and model. He was a pro dancer on the US version of Strictly, Dancing With The Stars, and also works on the Russian version of the show. He's rubbed shoulders with some big names including Jennifer Lopez, who he danced alongside in a L'Oreal commercial. "I can't wait to join the show – I'm really excited to join such a fabulous brand and dance like the whole world is watching."
He moved from Sicily to Bologna at the age of 14 to pursue his dancing dreams and ended up winning the Italian Championships in 2012! It sounds like he's going to be a competitive addition to the show, as he has a tattoo reading 'Born To Win' written on his arm! "I have loved watching Strictly Come Dancing and I can't wait to be part of the show."
South African-born Otlile is familiar with the Strictly format: she currently dances on the German version of the show. She moved from South Africa to Germany to pursue her dancing career – but not before winning the South African Latin American Championship a whopping EIGHT times! And if that's not impressive enough, she also studied civil engineering at uni! "To finally see my dreams unfold before my eyes is such an unbelievable feeling. I'm so excited to meet the team and the other dancers."
