Team GB Olympic athletes to join Strictly pros for Children in Need special

Team GB Olympic medallists will swap Rio for the Rumba in a Strictly Come Dancing special for the BBC’s Children in Need this year.

The Olympians will be joined on the dancefloor by four Strictly pros: Rower Helen Glover will dance with Pasha Kovalev, hockey player Hollie Webb with Neil Jones, canoeist Joe Clarke with Janette Manrara and taekwondo athlete Lutalo Muhammad with Karen Clifton.

Helen Glover MBE, number one female rower in the world and two-time Olympic champion, admitted: “I’m definitely out of my comfort zone!” while taekwondo star Lutalo Muhammad, who came heart-breakingly close to gold in Rio, said: “I can’t wait to strut my stuff and hopefully show off some fighting moves.”
