Jennifer GIbney

Mrs Brown’s Boys actress Jennifer Gibney was one of the last celebrities to be announced for this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing. She joined the show she says simply because she was asked.

Is Jennifer a competitive person? ‘You’d have to ask my family that question – I don’t think I can answer it honestly. I have been known to upend the odd Trivial Pursuit board in my time, but my family would probably be the better judge about that than me.’

Who would make the perfect dance partner? ‘It would be someone who embraces fun and who understands the fact that I am a beginner. And I think the two of those things will balance each other out.’

Part of the Strictly magic is the sequins, glitter and tan which Jennifer says she’s used to, ‘Yes, we had it every Tuesday on Mrs Brown’s Boys, we called it tanning Tuesday, I am used to it, I am going to embrace it.’
