FILMING for The Greatest Dancer season 2 is well underway and with it comes a shake up and a few surprises.
While Cheryl Tweedy, Matthew Morrison and Oti Mabuse are all returning as dance captains on the show. But did you know that Love Island's Curtis Pritchard is joining as the resident receptionist? Here's what you need to know…
Is Curtis Pritchard joining the show?
Yes, on July 31, 2019 The Sun exclusively revealed that Curtis would be joining the second series of the show.
The Love Island star has been signed up to be the show's resident receptionist in the Syco-produced programme.
In the first series it was played by TV producer Amelia Wilson, who fans praised for her banter with the hopeful before they auditioned.
A source said: “The BBC and Simon were keen to get involved in the frenzy that is Love Island and thought Curtis went down well with viewers.
“The receptionist role sounds a small one but it’s important first port of call for contestants when they appear on the show and their interactions with Curtis will set them up nicely before they go out in front of the dance captains.”
Who are the Dance Captains?
First up, there's former X Factor judge and pop superstar Cheryl Tweedy, 35.
After 11 years as part of girl group Girls Aloud, the singer launched a solo career and went on to become a judge on ITV's X Factor.
This will be the second year for Cheryl in her first major role after a four-year break that saw her give birth to son, Bear, and end her relationship with former One Direction singer, Liam Payne.
After being announced as a judge on series one of the show Cheryl was panned by fans for her 'mum-dancing' and accused of having 'limited experience'.
Next on the panel is actor and Broadway star Matthew Morrison, 40, who starred as Mr. Schue on Fox's hit show, Glee.
The award-winning actor studied musical theatre, vocal performance and dance at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.
He has danced and sung in hit musicals Footloose, Hairspray and 10 Million Miles.
The father-of-one revealed in an exclusive interview with The Sun's Fabulous that he believes 'anyone can learn to dance'.
Last but not least is Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse, 28.
Although the beauty studied Civil Engineering at university, dancing was always her true passion, specialising in Latin American and ballroom.
A member of the Strictly family since 2015, the dance champion has travelled the world collecting title after title, winning the South African Latin American Championships eight times.
