The Strictly Come Dancing professionals will take to the dancefloor one last time in 2020 with a special routine as part of the BBC’s The Big New Year’s In.

The routine features 10 of the show’s professional dancers and was filmed earlier in the year in the Strictly ballroom.

The specially-choreographed routine will see the professionals dance to a mash-up of Whitney Houston’s I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me) and Dance Again by Jennifer Lopez.
