Raise our 'Strictly spirits this autumn BBC Strictly returns to our screens on Saturday 18 September and the upcoming series of Strictly marks a number of firsts for the BBC show, with former Bake Off star John Whaite set to dance in the competition’s first all-male same-sex pairing, while four new Strictly professionals join the show’s accomplished cast. As for the judging panel, Anton Du Beke will be filling in for Bruno Tonioli all season alongside Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood and Motsi Mabuse . Well its not a first for CAUSE in that this is the second year in succession that we haven’t been able to stage our signature fundraising events – Strictly for CAUSE! However we do hope to be back early 2020! In the meantime – will you lift our Strictly spirits this autumn? Are you a Strictly lover?
