NEW STRICKLY HUNK REVEALED
BBC bosses are splashing the cash to put on the biggest ever Strictly Come Dancing – and have found a hunky replacement for Brendan Cole.
The 2018 series boasts an extra three professional dancers, boosting their ranks from 15 to 18.
Among the new additions is Graziano Di Prima – a hunky Italian ready to fill Brendan’s big shoes.
The 42-year-old viewers’ favourite was axed after 14 years following a series of arguments with judges.
Sicilian beefcake Graziano, 24, is an Italian Latin Champion whose brooding looks have already seen him compared to Poldark’s Aidan Turner. He said: “This is my dream come true. ”
The other new dancers are South African Johannes Radebe, 31, and Russian bombshell Luba Mushtuk, 28.
Johannes, 31, is an award-winning Latin dancer in South Africa and was a pro on Strictly in his native country, reaching two finals.
He said: “Joining Strictly Come Dancing is one of the greatest achievements of my dancing career.
Luba, previously an assistant choreographer for Strictly, said: “Words cannot express how thrilled I am to do what I love on the greatest show.”
