BBC Strictly spin-off for members of public confirmed in huge show shake-up

Strictly Come Dancing could be airing its first-ever series including members of the public, AI has claimed.

The glitzy BBC One show is a firm favourite and has been since its debut on TV screens back in 2004. Year in and year out, millions of Brits have tuned in to watch the latest lot of celebs strut their stuff on the dance floor.

The show has seen everyone from the likes of Spice Girl Emma Bunton, rocker Harry Judd and model Abbey Clancy show off their best moves. And who could forget former MP Anne Widdecombe getting dragged across the dance floor by Anton Du Beke?

And while many fans wish they had the chance to scoop up the Glitterball Trophy, the competition has always only been open to celebrities. But apparently, that could all be changing soon.

Daily Star has quizzed one of the world’s most popular artificially intelligent “creative” tools Bard AI, to see if a Strictly series for the general public could be made. And the answer will go down a treat with fans.

The program responded: “There are a few reasons why it is possible that we could see a Strictly Come Dancing series for the general public.” Bard AI then listed the reasons.

The system explained: “First, the BBC has shown a willingness to experiment with the Strictly Come Dancing format in recent years. In 2021, they launched a new series for children called Strictly Come Dancing Kids, and in 2022, they aired a special episode for Comic Relief called The People's Strictly, which featured six members of the public being trained by Strictly Come Dancing professionals.”

The second reason is that the BBC are apparently “always looking” for new ways to engage with its viewers and audience. And AI reckons a Strictly series for the general public “could be a great way to do that.”

The program said: “It would allow ordinary people to experience the magic of Strictly Come Dancing. It could also be a way to promote dance and fitness to the wider public.”

The final reason is down to the “increasing competition from streaming services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime Video. The system said: “A Strictly Come Dancing series for the general public could be a way for the BBC to differentiate itself from these services and attract new viewers.”

As fans will recall, there was a one-off special Strictly show catered for members of the public back in 2015. The programme was called The People's Strictly, and was made for to Comic Relief.
