Share your selfies and messages in support of South Shields comedian Chris Ramsey ahead of Strictly Movie Week

We want to hear your good luck messages for Chris Ramsey and professional dance partner Karen Hauer ahead of Strictly Come Dancing’s Movie Week special!

Saturday, 5th October 2019, 9:00 am

The South Shields comedian is set to take on the style and swagger of Fred Astaire in this week’s routine; an American Smooth to Frank Sinatra’s Cheek to Cheek, from the film Top Hat.

And after last weekend’s Charleston, which netted the couple a huge 26 points, we cannot wait to see what he’s managed to accomplish in the training room ahead of week three’s show on Saturday, October 5.

Judges praised Chris for his letting his personality shine through in Charleston, so hopefully he has continued to improve after putting the hours in this week.
