Wicklow dancer added to BBC Strictly Come Dancing line up

Wicklow born Tristan MacManus joins Strictly after three years as a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars in America, where he most notably partnered Gladys Knight and Pamela Anderson.

“We’re delighted that Tristan will be joining our fantastic cast of professional dancers this year and look forward to him becoming part of the Strictly family.
