Former Strictly star Mollie King wishes class of 2018 good luck
Mollie King has wished this year’s Strictly Come Dancing contestants good luck, telling them: “You’re going to have the time of your life.”
The Saturdays singer, 31, was part of last year’s celebrity line-up and danced with AJ Pritchard.
The couple were the 11th pairing to leave last year, losing out in a dance-off against soap star and radio presenter Gemma Atkinson.
King shared a photograph of herself and dancer Pritchard on Instagram, writing: “I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was partnered up with @aj11ace on @bbcstrictly! The best partner i could’ve ever asked for.
“I am so unbelievably excited to watch it this year, and wish every single one of you taking part the best of luck – you’re going to have the time of your life!
“I wish I could do it all over again, but more than that, I want to wish you AJ an incredible journey with your partner this year – you know I’ll be rooting for you all the way… go get it champ xx #strictly #dreams #strictlycomedancing.”
Strictly judge Bruno Tonioli could not contain his excitement at the return of the BBC One dancing series.
He tweeted a photograph of himself with presenters Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman, across which he had written: “We are back. Have you missed us?”
Brian Conley, who also appeared in the last series, shared a photograph of himself from last year dressed as the scarecrow from The Wizard Of Oz.
He wrote: “Good luck all the dancers on this years #Strictly and especially @dowden_amy whoever is chosen for you Amy will be one lucky man.”
During Saturday night’s show, the celebrities will find out who they are paired with.
