Strictly Seashell returns in 2020 for its third year and the mystery stars of the Seashell show were officially unveiled at a glitzy launch night held at Boodles in Manchester on Thursday. With tables already sold out and training well under way, the 9 leaders willing to put their reputations on the line this year have officially been revealed as:

  • Kate Bates, Peacock Design & Print
  • Natalie Bennett, Together Money

  • Greg Buckley, Eversheds
  • Vicky Chawla, Goldcrest Finance
  • Oliver Dunn, Oliver Dunn Chocolate Parties

By 16 May the dancers will have undergone ten weeks’ training, ready to compete on the night for the coveted glitterball trophy.  The dancers are training with Cadman’s Dance Centre in Sale. This year’s event aims to raise at £130k for Seashell Trust, a national charity based in Cheadle Hulme for children with severe learning difficulties.

Jolanta McCall, Chief Executive at Seashell Trust said:

“We’re delighted to have such great people involved in Strictly Seashell this year. The money raised for our charity will be put towards giving children and young people in our care a safe and happy environment to achieve their potential within the community and we’re looking forward to what promises to be a fabulous event.”
