Rose was Strictly’s first deaf participant.
Now, back for its 20th series, Strictly Taken 15 new hopeful waiting in the wings to show us their moves.
From TV stars to singers, football legends to comedians, who will turn out to be a real ballroom and who might have two left feet?
Do you have any ideas about what you think will happen in this series?
Get ready for the latest dance floor rookies by playing Strictly Come Dancing bingo!
Make some play-along bingo cards and give this game a spin.
Strictly Come Dancing bingo
To make your own Strictly Bingo cards you will need:
- Pieces of paper with 3×3 grids drawn on them.
- Your fellow bench judges (as many friends/family as want to join).
- Drinks and snacks, because watching celebrities dance is exhausting work!
Pick eight events likely to occur during Strictly and write them down on your bingo card, leaving the center square blank.
In this center square, write your Strictly Come Dancing inspired bingo name.
There may be a bonus point or prize for the most creative name choice!
That could be “The Ballroom Belle”, “The Quickstep Queen”, “The Waltzing Wizard” or “Let’s Get ready to Rumba”.
If any of your guessed events happen during the show, mark it with your dabber!
If you want to have multiple winners, you can award a prize for 1L and 2L (that is when a prize is given to the first player to mark one full line and two full lines).
However, if there’s only room for one Lord or Lady of the Dance, they’ll be the first to get a full house (when all the things on your bingo card are checked).
This game can be played over one episode (and the winner is the player with the most squares marked) or your bingo game can be played over the series, until a full house winner is crowned.
