STRICTLY Come Dancing favourite Ian Waite is on the hunt to find contestants to take part in a special Glasgow charity dance-off.

Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, Spina Bifida Hydrocephalus Scotland (SBH Scotland) is again asking couples to take to the stage in support of the charity.

They’ll receive 10 weeks of professional dance training to learn and perfect their foxtrots, waltzes and sambas before performing in front of the crowd.

Contestants will try to impress a panel of fierce judges which includes Strictly Professional Ian and Scots radio host James Smith a.k.a. “Mr Fabulous”.

Much like the hit show, the competition will see 12 couples battle it out on the dance floor for the coveted Glitter Ball trophy. However, breaking with convention, SBH Scotland with be opening the contest to same-sex couples.

Ian said: “From what I know about Glaswegians, they’re up for a bit of fun, love to get out on the dancefloor and always go that extra mile for a good cause. SBH Scotland’s Strictly Come Prancing has all this and more. It’s got the glitz, glam and gives contestants the chance to do something different.

“Don’t worry if you’ve got two left feet because you’ll receive top training before you take to the stage. All proceeds will be donated directly to SBH Scotland which looks after children, young people and families affected by the lifelong conditions of spina bifida and hydrocephalus.”

The inaugural SBH Scotland Strictly Come Prancing held last year at the DoubleTree by Hilton Glasgow was attended by a host of famous faces, including TV fashionista Gok Wan who took on the role of head judge.
