A fourth judge is also to be announced. Celebrity JustDance will be held at the MK Arena on Saturday November. 18. So the countdown is on – with dancers having just five weeks to perfect their cha cha and waltz.
All profits from Celebrity JustDance will go to MK Dons SET.
Organiser Accursio Romeo said: “We are delighted to have MK Dons SET as our charity this year; over the last four years we have raised over £130,000 for charity.
“Last year we raised £28,004.58 for Willen Hospice and this year we are hoping to top that.
“We already two fantastic headline sponsors PJ Care and Workflow and would love to get more MK companies involved.”
All the celebrities’ footwear is supplied by International Dance Shoes, based in Milton Keynes, and dresses by professional dancewear designer Loren James Bespoke Designs – meaning the contestants will be kitted out to Strictly Come Dancing standard.
