Prima (UK) - - Welcome - GABY HUDDART, ED­I­TOR

What’s the best thing about this time of year? Warm­ing sup­pers and hug-in-a-bowl puds are strong con­tenders, as is choos­ing a fab­u­lous new win­ter coat and putting on some stun­ning (and warm) win­ter boots… But for many of us, the real high­light comes on a Satur­day night with Strictly back on the telly! Go on, ad­mit it, you know you love it!

An ex-strictly fi­nal­ist, our cover star,

Su­sanna Reid, tells us not only about her larger-than-life sofa com­pan­ion Piers Mor­gan, but also about the ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing in the ball­room – ‘it’s won­der­ful, in­tense and to­tally ab­sorb­ing’ – and con­fesses she’s ‘just as ad­dicted to the show as the rest of the na­tion’.

An­other Strictly devo­tee, best­selling au­thor Vic­to­ria His­lop, spends Satur­day nights with her 90-year-old mum watch­ing Strictly: ‘I’ve been known to turn down in­vi­ta­tions in favour of stay­ing home to watch it,’ she re­veals. So we de­cided to make her dream come true and give her a dance les­son with one of the pro dancers, the

gor­geous Gorka Márquez, so she could tell us all what it’s like to learn how to dance. I do hope you en­joy read­ing about her amaz­ing day.

I be­lieve Strictly taps into our deep need for sparkle and es­capism on dark win­ter days, es­pe­cially when there’s so much gloom in the news. It’s vi­tal to give our­selves chances to feel in­spired and to dream... which is why we think this is the per­fect time of year to bring you our 28-page travel spe­cial!

An ex­tra sec­tion that we hope will leave you mulling over where you’d like to go on your next hol­i­day… En­joy!
