Holby favourite joins Strictly
East Londoner and former Holby City favourite Chizzy Akudolu has been unveiled as one of the celebrities for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.
It comes after she left the hospital soap in June, having played surgeon Mo Effanga for five years. She joins Holby co-star Joe McFadden in the sequinned line-up for the 15th season of the show, due to start at the end of September.
She said she was beaten in a disco dancing competition when she was 13. “That was then, this is now and this is my chance to have even more sequins!”
