Daily journalists to take part in patch’s answer to Strictly

Two daily journalists are set to compete in their patch’s answer to Strictly Come Dancing for charity.

Dundee Evening Telegraph features writer Amy Hall and sports reporter Calum Woodger have signed up to take part in Strictly Come Prancing, which will see them face 11 other couples on the dancefloor.

Dundee’s answer to the BBC TV hit show was launched last month at Evening Telegraph owner DC Thomson’s Meadowside HQ, with the dance-off set to take place in November.

The event is being held to raise cash for children’s charity Help for Kids.

Amy told the Evening Telegraph: “I can’t wait to get out there on the dancefloor in the coming weeks, let’s hope those disco dancing classes my mum and dad paid for when I was a wee girl will help me, although I think I am most excited to meet Gok Wan.

“The event is for a great cause and I hope we can raise as much money as possible.”

Tele editor Andrew Kellock said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Strictly Come Prancing which I think is going to be a fantastic event.

“All the couples who have signed up to dance are very brave, but they’re going to have a great time, and most importantly they’re going to be raising money for a charity which makes a real difference to the lives of children and families in Dundee and beyond.”
