TV personality Debbie McGee is following in the footsteps of her late husband Paul Daniels by participating in Strictly Come Dancing.
“There are no words to describe how I feel about performing on Strictly Come Dancing,” Debbie said. “The excitement is overwhelming. I can’t stop smiling. It’s been the hardest secret I have ever had to keep!”
Best-known for appearing alongside Daniels on his BBC One series The Paul Daniels Magic Show from 1979 to 1994, McGee is a household name. Her husband appeared on Strictly as a contestant in 2010 where he was partnered with Ola Jordan.
McGee’s career has included classical ballet, cabaret, theatre, films and radio DJ.
She joins Chizzy Akudolu, Charlotte Hawkins, Brian Conley, Susan Calman, Aston Merrygold, Simon Rimmer, Joe McFadden, Reverend Richard Coles, Gemma Atkinson, Ruth Langsford, Davood Ghadami and Mollie King who have also been confirmed for the new series.
