Call for ‘unsung heroes’ to take part in Strictly Come Dancing special

Categories: Community Engagement.

The national broadcaster would like to open up the programme to unsung heroes who have changed people’s lives for the better.

If you know somebody from the hospice and palliative care sector who deserves to don the sequins and take to the dance floor, you can nominate them now to take part in a one-off televised Strictly experience.

“We’re looking for you to nominate real people – those inspiring, selfless people who genuinely change the lives of others – and of course, it’s essential that they’re Strictly super fans!” the BBC writes on its website.

Adding: “They could be tireless charity workers, foster parents, emergency services workers or simply those who have done such extraordinary things for others that their story must be told.”

The show will form part of next year’s Red Nose Day campaign and will raise money for Comic Relief and applicants must be 18 years old or over. The closing date for nominations is 31 October 2014.

To nominate a deserving super fan, email: for an application form, or find out more about The People’s Strictly online.
