Strictly Come Dancing 2019: Nancy Xu snubbed from new trailer after pro switch-up

0


Strictly Come Dancing fans are ready to meet the 2019 line-up, and ahead of the launch, the BBC has released its exciting trailer.

The professional dancers can all be seen in seriously sparkly and flamboyant outfits as they parade behind the scenes of the studio.

However, it seems incoming dancer, Nancy Xu is missing from the video. 

As the professionals all pose for one final shot at the end, Nancy is nowhere to be seen.

The new professional has not been seen on screen at all since she was announced earlier in the year.

Her exclusion comes after Strictly confirmed a number of changes to the professional line up. 

Both Graziano Di Prima and Gorka Marquez have been confirmed as not having celebrity partners.

Despite both having a role last year, their job will be considerably smaller this year as they will just be taking part in group dances. 

However, it’s currently unknown whether Nancy will get a partner or not. 

Meanwhile, fans are looking forward to getting to know the new dancer.

Nancy is a world class professional Latin dancer having placed highly in a number of championships, including U21 World Championships and International Singapore Championships.

She’s no stranger to televised competitions either as she has previously taken part in So You Think You Can Dance China.

What’s more, she’s also been a hit on the West End and Broadway show, Burn The Floor. 

When she was announced as the new Strictly professional, Nancy said: “I’m thrilled and excited! 

“I cannot wait to start this new journey with all these amazing people and share the magic together.”

Elsewhere in the trailer, Anton Du Beke takes centre stage as he dons a Billy Porter-inspired outfit.

The ballroom favourite can be seen towards the end of the show dressed in a tuxedo from the waist up.

However, when the camera pans down, he can be seen donning an elegant black and gold full-length skirt. 

He is surrounded by the rest of his professional colleagues who are all wearing an array of spectacular outfits.

Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One on September 7.
