And while Amy is one of the celebrities, keen dancer Tracey is taking part as one of the professionals.

The competition, sponsored by Aspers Casino, Northampton, takes place at the Derngate theatre in Northampton on Saturday, November 21.

It is now in its sixth year and has raised hundreds of thousands of pounds for charity.

Amy said: “Not only do I get to dance, I am doing it to raise money to support the amazing work that Cynthia Spencer Hospice Charity do.

“I have a target of £1,000 to raise – it’s a lot of money but all donations help.

“By donating you will be helping me to raise as much as possible to help Cynthia Spencer provide the very best palliative care to help both patients and their families.”

Amy’s Just Giving page can be found here.

Step by Step Dance School of Henry Street, Northampton, has taken over the running of the show, with founder and former dance champion Andrzej Mialkowski giving the contestants a taster session and teaching them some basic steps.

Hosts for the night will be ITV’s weather presenter Laura Tobin, and Inspiration FM and BBC Radio Northampton presenter Mark Dean.

There will be 24 couples competing against each other including author, cookery tutor and demonstrator Carmela Sereno Hayes and weight consultant Jules Gladwin,

Former Strictly Come Dancing favourite Robin Windsor will be a judge this year.

Tickets for this year’s Strictly Northampton are now on sale.
