Strictly Come Dancing’s Stacey Dooley And Joe Sugg To Front BBC One’s New Year’s Eve Celebration
“This is the perfect ending to such a great year!”
Stacey Dooley has already landed her first post-‘Strictly Come Dancing’ presenting gig, following her win this weekend.
She and fellow ‘Strictly’ finalist Joe Sugg will present BBC One’s New Year coverage, seeing in 2019 with a night of entertainment.
In addition to Stacey and Joe, viewers will be treated to a performance by the Kingdom Choir, who serenaded Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at their wedding earlier this year.
Madness will also open the proceedings with a medley of their hits.
The BBC One New Year’s Eve celebrations will air from 11.35pm until a minute before midnight, at which point there will be 15 minutes’ worth of fireworks displays, before returning to the action with Stacey and Joe.
Speaking about the presenting gig, Stacey said: “2018 has been such a fantastic year for me, working on some hard hitting documentaries as well as Strictly, has been a real treat.
“Presenting with Joe Sugg at the New Year’s Eve concert with Madness is the perfect ending to such a great year!”
Joe, best known for his work as a YouTube vlogger, added: “I’m so excited to be presenting with my fellow Strictly pal Stacey Dooley at the incredible New Year’s Eve concert in London with the legendary band Madness…what a great finale to a terrific year. Bring on 2019!”
Stacey and Joe were two of this year’s four ‘Strictly’ finalists, alongside Steps singer Faye Tozer and former Pussycat Dolls performer Ashley Roberts.
Joe has since made headlines by revealing that he and his professional partner, Dianne Buswell, are in a relationship.
