STRICTLY hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman kept fans on tenterhooks yesterday, saying they had finally been told which celebrities will be taking part – but could not tell viewers.
The pair took to social media to share the moment they were reunited for the 16th season of Strictly Come Dancing, which starts next month on BBC One. The photo showed them cuddling and grinning broadly.
Tess, 49, wrote: “Got to snuggle up to this one today. So excited for our first day back to work PLUS we found out the new celeb cast for Strictly 2018. Can’t wait to share it with you.”
Claudia wrote: “First day on Strictly. Tess and I are about to be told who’s taking part. I’ll let you know...”
The teaser came as Ladbrokes closed the betting on former Girls Aloud star Cheryl and fellow front runners Faye Tozer and Ashley Roberts.
