You have until March 24 to sign up for Strictly Get Dancing.

Please note: Registration for dancers is now closed.

A Strictly themed cha-cha-charity fundraiser is back for 2017 – and there promises to be even more glitz and glamour.

The inaugural Strictly Get Dancing contest raised more than £15,000 for St Andrew’s Hospice when it burst onto the dancefloor last summer.

Couples are now being sought for this year’s competition, which will see them take part in several weeks of rehearsals ready for the big finale, at The Beachcomber, Cleethorpes, on Saturday, May 13.

Once again, the venue has been donated to the hospice for the event and well-known dance tutors Keith and Judy Clifton - whose children Kevin and Joanne are professional dancers on the BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing – are donating their time to coach the couples.

Last year’s contest was the first time organiser Mick Enright had done anything like it.

He said: "The reason I support the hospice is because it’s local and could be any of us who needs its care. It’s a magnificent place and I can’t speak highly enough of the team there."

Last year’s event raised a grand total of £15,357.41, which saw a sell-out crowd of about 400 people watch 12 couples dance and vote Ben Mortlock and Emily Crowder to victory.

Couples have until Friday, March 24 to sign up. Tickets for spectators are £25 each with allocated seating, on a first-come first-served basis. Watch this space for when tickets go on sale.

Get involved by calling ZaZa on 01472 571268 or emailing zaza.warren@nhs.net, or call Mick on 07931 703512.
