Former Strictly champion Joanne Clifton to star in new musical
Ex-Strictly Come Dancing star Joanne Clifton has announced her new job, starring in the UK tour of Flashdance - The Musical.
Clifton, who won the last series of Strictly with Ore Oduba, announced yesterday that she was quitting the BBC ballroom dancing show.
She said her role as Alex Owens in the UK tour was "another dream come true".
Clifton added: "I think everyone in the world, whether dancer or non-dancer, as soon as they hear What A Feeling, remembers that iconic scene at the end of the film.
"I'm over the moon. It's another amazing opportunity in my musical theatre career."
