‘I’m looking for acts with real passion, who are going to push boundaries and give it their all, no matter what challenges are thrown at them.

This is Cheryl’s first full-time TV role since she stepped out of the limelight in 2016 to look after her adorable son Bear.

And it looks like she’s not the only one who’s excited about getting back to work, as pro ballroom dancer Oti has also been sharing some videos from behind-the-scenes.
