Strictly judges sign up for series

Messenger Newspapers: Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli will return to the Strictly panel Craig Revel Horwood, Darcey Bussell, Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli will return to the Strictly panel

Strictly Come Dancing's familiar judging panel has signed up for a further series ahead of the BBC1 show's return in the autumn.

Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood - who have been with the programme since its inception - will be joined once again by Darcey Bussell, who will be on board for her third series.

There had been speculation that Goodman, 70, may step down from the programme but he will continue.

Presenter Sir Bruce Forsyth announced earlier this year that he was retiring from the series, although he may still appear in one-off specials.

A spokesman for the show confirmed: "They're all coming back."

Judy Murray, the mother of reigning men's Wimbledon champion Andy Murray, is in talks to appear as a contestant on this y ear's series, which will be hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman.

On Pride Day, I feel it's about time they featured same-sex dancing couples on Strictly. To not do so is blatantly heterosexist and gender normative. Ironically, other countries that have copied the BBC's flagship television show began including same-sex dancing partners years' ago. I find it most mercenary and cowardly of the Beeb to refuse to include same-sex couples simply because they are afraid they will lose ratings when those amongst what is now the pathetically tiny, nutty minority (but seemingly increasingly loud-mouthed) segment of the viewing public who are homophobic and sexist decide to switch channels.
