Got To dance returns to Sky TV for a third series in the new year. The Sky 1 HD hit talent show will be in its third series when it kicks off on the first of January.
Presenter Davina McCall will return with the judges to travel the country to find the most talented dancers, crews and troupes of any age and style, who will push themselves all the way to win a the £250,000 cash prize.
Last year the winners were street dance duo Chris and Wes and this year the new hopefuls are all hoping to follow in their footsteps to impress the judges: West End star and actor Adam Garcia, trained dancer and former Pussycat Doll Kimberly Wyatt, and Diversity’s lead dancer and choreographer Ashley Banjo.
The format for this year will consist of eight audition shows, filmed in Dublin, Glasgow and London. The judges will whittle down the shortlist to 30 acts, who will compete in five live shows. The final will again take place at the Kensington Olympia, in front of an audience of 6,000.
Davina said: “I am literally beside myself with excitement at the return of our third series of Got To Dance. I love working with gorgeous Adam, lovely Kimberly and of course sweetheart Ashley! Just you wait until you see the auditions – this year the bar has been raised even higher with so many acts worthy of a quarter of a million.”
Got To Dance series three launches on Sunday 1st January 2012 at 6.00pm on Sky1 and Sky1 HD, with the second auditions show following the next day, also at 6pm.
