Nominate an amazing nurse for chance to dance in Strictly

  • Comment

The BBC is asking nurses to nominate their colleagues for a special edition of Strictly Come Dancing, which will feature “unsung heroes”.

The production team that makes the programme has asked Nursing Times readers for help in finding “inspiring everyday unsung heroes” to appear in the hit dance show.

The programme, which will form part of next year’s Red Nose Day campaign and will raise money for Comic Relief, will appear on BBC One in the lead up to the night of TV in March 2015.

Richard Ash, assistant producer at BBC Entertainment and Events, said: “We would really like you to nominate your heroes or heroines for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity – their very own televised Strictly experience. 

“We are looking for… real people who genuinely change many other people’s lives,” he said. “It should be an amazing chance to reward these amazing people.

“The show is going to be a complete surprise to these individuals, so it is very important that they have no idea they are being nominated for the show,” he added.

The successful nominees will receive four weeks of training from one of the programme’s professional dancers culminating in a performance to the nation, which will be judged by the Strictly judges.

Nursing Times readers can get hold of a nomination form by emailing
