Strictly Come Dancing star Nancy Xu joined the dancing competition in 2019 and immediately impressed viewers with her expertise.

This year, the professional dancer was partnered with CBBC presenter Rhys Stephenson and the pair are still in the series competing.

With only a few weeks to go, Rhys and Nancy have been hard at work rehearsing and impressing judges with their slick moves.

They even received Motsi Mabuse’s earliest ever perfect score of ten just three weeks in.

Other new professional dancers include Kai Widdrington (who is partnered with AJ Odudu) and Nikita Kuzmin (who is paired with Tilly Ramsey).

Before joining Strictly, Nancy had a rich history of dancing and dancing competitions.
