The Strictly Come Dancing pairings have been prematurely revealed before the official launch. The BBC had planned to announce the partnerships during the first show on Saturday, September 23, but a social media user, known for previously spoiling the show’s lineup, has disclosed them ahead of time.
While we won’t divulge the pairings here to preserve the surprise, this reveal has sparked backlash, with some social media users expressing their desire to experience the anticipation of the show’s official announcement. Others found the pairings ‘interesting,’ while the absence of a professional dancer in the 2023 series disappointed many.
The identity of the Strictly ‘mole,’ revealed as David Thorp, has faced criticism from the show’s stars, including judge Anton Du Beke, who pleaded with the ‘super leaker’ to stop the spoilers on Loose Women.
Reports suggest that Strictly producers have been trying to identify the source of information leaks to Thorp and various Strictly spoiler pages within their production team.
This particular ‘mole’ though claims he doesn’t have a single source and often audience members will message in the results which are filmed on a Saturday night immediately after the live show.
He confirmed he was earning revenues from the spoiler account, although refused to specify the exact amount, and has previously defended leaking information about the show.
‘I don’t put the results for everyone to see and they have to search for my site to find out the results,’ Thorp told MailOnline.
‘There is an appetite from people who want to know the results before Sunday.
‘It could be argued that the BBC is to blame for recording something which is of massive interest the day before.’
This year’s Strictly lineup includes newsreader Krishnan Guru-Murthy, former tennis player Annabel Croft, actor Nigel Harman, EastEnder Bobby Brazier, Paralympian Jody Cundy, former Coronation Street star Ellie Leach, comedian Les Dennis, and actress Amanda Abbington, among others.
Radio host Nikita Kanda, Waterloo Road actor Adam Thomas, Love Island star Zara McDermott, Irish TV presenter Angela Scanlon, Bad Education’s Layton Williams, comedian Eddie Kadi, and TV legend Angela Rippon will also grace the dance floor.
These contestants will aim to impress judges Craig Revel Horwood, Anton du Beke, Shirley Ballas, and Motsi Mabuse with their dance skills, all vying for the coveted Glitterball Trophy.
Strictly Come Dancing 2023 returns on Saturday, September 23, on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
