Trishna Bharadia, from Marlow is one of six people who has been chosen out of thousands to take part in BBC1’s first ever “The People’s Strictly Come Dancing” for Comic Relief.
Since being diagnosed with MS in 2008, she has worked hard to raise awareness about the condition and support others with MS. Her work has been recognised by various organisations and she was the MS Society’s Volunteer of the Year in 2013.
Now, she will be given the chance to dance with one of the “Strictly Come Dancing” professional dancers in front of a studio audience and the well-known Strictly judges, ahead of a public vote. There will be four programmes altogether on BBC1 in the run-up to Comic Relief.
Programme 1, 25th Feb, will cover the background of first three contestants.
Programme 2, 4th March, will cover the background of the remaining three contestants.
Programme 3, 5th March, will show all contestants training with their Pro Dancer partners.
Programme 4, 11th March, will show all contestants dancing in front of the judges and the audience.
The public voting will start after the 4th programme and the winner will be announced on 13th March 2015 on Comic Relief.
