BBC Breakfast's Sally Nugent is the celebrity Strictly fans are most excited to see perform during the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special 2023 . Dancing with Graziano Di Prima, the popular newsreader will be hoping to dazzle the judges — Shirley Ballas, Craig Revel Horwood, Motsi Mabuse and Anton Du Beke — with a Foxtrot in a bid to win the festive special which airs on BBC One on Christmas Day at 4:40pm.

She'll face competition on the dancefloor from EastEnders star Jamie Borthwick, broadcaster and historian Dan Snow, Waterloo Road star Tillie Amartey, former rugby player Danny Cipriani and Sugababe's Keisha Buchanan, but it's clear fans will be rooting for Sally to win.

The newsreader is clearly taking the competition seriously having recently revealed that she injured her ribs during training.
