FIRST LOOK The Real Dirty Dancing

E4 have released the trailer for The Real Dirty Dancing, co-hosted by Keith Lemon and Ashley Roberts, as the celebrity line-up is revealed!


Inspired by the Australian series of the same name, The Real Dirty Dancing launches on E4 later this month and sees 10 celebrities having the time of their life as they prepare for an immersive and nostalgia packed dance experience like no other.


Co-hosted by Dirty Dancing superfan, Keith Lemon and Pussycat Doll, Ashley Roberts, the 10 celebrities will move into a stunning Lakeside location, reminiscent of the original Kellermans resort, where their dance moves will be well and truly put to the test, with dance expertise from the creative director of Dreamboys, Jordan Darrell.


Taking part will be presenter Anthea Turner, Blue’s Lee Ryan, TOWIE’s James Argent, reality TV star Marnie Simpson, social media star & TV personality Saffron Barker, comedian Darren Harriott, comedian and actor Verona Rose, former Goggleboxer and performer Tom Malone Jr, teacher and celebrity quizzer Bobby Seagull and actress Chelsee Healey.


In couples, they'll compete as they take on challenges and dance routines based on iconic scenes from the classic film. Each couple has one thing in common – they all want to be the last Baby and Johnny standing.



With only one couple able to win the competition, these celebs will need to prove themselves as they take part in entertaining challenges that’ll require them to embody the characters from the cult classic, as they work around the clock to discover their inner Johnny or Baby.


There’ll be no spaghetti arms as they attempt to learn and perform routines inspired by iconic moments, from Hungry Eyes to the jaw-dropping Mambo dance. But can they muster the strength for the lake lift, or the elegance required to balance on a fallen log? One thing is for sure, watermelon carrying skills are essential.

As the celebs dance with each other throughout the course of the show, the series culminates in a showstopping finale where the top two couples take on the moment every fan dreams of, the last dance of the season, with that gravity-defying lift! Meanwhile, the remaining six celebrities will become backing dancers for this one-off celebratory performance.


The Real Dirty Dancing launches this February on E4
