Comic Relief can reveal that even more celebrities have pledged to join the line-up for the Comic Relief Danceathon, a six hour non-stop dance frenzy, held on Sunday 8th March at The SSE Arena, Wembley to raise money for Red Nose Day 2015.
Additions to the already glittering line up include Comic Relief stalwart Davina McCall and presenter Caroline Flack, who recently danced home with the highly coveted Strictly Come Dancing Glitterball trophy. Property presenter Kirstie Allsopp also pledges to get in on the action, joining her will be dancing DJs Gemma Cairney, Edith Bowman and Sara Cox. Also confirmed to take part are Paralympic medallist Ade Adepitan MBE and wildlife presenter and Strictly star Steve Backshall.
Strictly Come Dancing professionals Aljaz Skorjanec, Ian Waite, Janette Manrara, Natalie Lowe and Robin Windsor will also be hot footing it to Wembley to help keep fundraisers on track throughout their epic endurance boogie.
These celebs will join the already jam packed line-up previously announced including Claudia Winkleman, Arlene Phillips, Chelsee Healey, Rachel Riley, Rufus Hound, Zoe Ball, Jo Whiley and Got to Dance’s Adam Garcia and Kimberly Wyatt.
Places for the star studded Wembley event are limited, but those who can’t make it can still dance along on the BBC Red Button wherever they are, in sitting rooms, village halls and local gyms across the country – all to raise money for Red Nose Day.
Caroline Flack said: “Dancing on Strictly was the best experience of my life and I think that the Comic Relief Danceathon is going to be such an amazing experience for everyone taking part. I would urge the lovely public to come and bust some moves with me at Wembley or grab a load of mates and put on their own Danceathon at home. It’s going to be so much fun, so the more people around the UK get involved, the better!”
Over 2,000 fundraisers will dance non-stop at the fun filled Wembley event with thousands expected to take part across the country on the BBC Red Button. Participants will be able to get their groove on to a range of genres including 70s disco, 80s power, 90s rave as well as pop, soul, ballroom and musical theatre.
The money raised by the Comic Relief Danceathon will be spent right here in the UK, and across Africa, helping vulnerable and disadvantaged people to turn their lives around.
