‘Strictly will be even more SPECIAL THIS YEAR'
Ahead of Strictly Come Dancing’s highly anticipated return, pro dancer Karen Hauer reveals why she’s so excited

It’s a well-known fact that the Strictly Come Dancing professional dancers rarely get time off – and Karen Hauer is no different.

First things first. How have you found lockdown?
