Strictly Dancing Ball: Meet the Dancers

The day of the Strictly Dancing Ball is getting closer; with just 12 days to go, we're introducing you to our final five dancers.

We are so proud of these incredible individuals who have been working so hard on their routines since February, as well as raising funds to help us to ensure that no young person faces cancer alone. 

The clock is ticking - make sure you don't miss out on this spectacular evening by booking your tickets by Wednesday 12th June. Click here to book now.

Malwina Brylak

Profession: Personal Trainer/ RTT Hypnotherapist 

Dance Partner: Connor McCabe

Dance: Rumba

"Having a chance to raise money for such an amazing charity is a perfect reason to step out of my comfort zone! I never expected learning the steps to be so hard; it just proves what you can do when you set your mind to something." 


Mandy Karimloo

Profession: Freelance Fitness Instructor/ Trainer

Dance Partner: Charlie Klysz

Dance: Salsa

"It has been a delight to experience and learn such a challenging dance, all thanks to my amazing partner, Charlie. I'm hoping I can make him proud. Learning about Teens Unite and the work of the charity was reason enough to put myself forward to take part. Here's to a night full of fun and enjoyment for a wonderful cause."


Tricia Holmes

Profession: Artist

Dance Partner: Lee Boocock-Stephenson

Dance: Paso Doble

"When you look at how easy the pros make it look; you think yes, I can have a go at that. You then realise how hard and technical this challenge is. I'm loving learning a new skill, even though I'm terrified of messing up on the night. That being said, it's nothing compared to what these young people go through and I'm honoured to be able to help this amazing charity."


Tom O'Hanlon

Profession: Freelance Business Developer

Dance Partner: Natasha Mistri

Dance: Cha Cha Cha

"I always try and do something at least once a year to do my bit. Normaly it's triathlons, marathons or bike rides... this year I thought I'd try and dance! I'm a complete novice! After five months of training, I'm excited to make a difference to someone's life by dancing."


Wendy Croker

Profession: Interior Designer/ Mum/ Wife

Dance Partner: Charlie Klysz

Dance: Paso Doble

"I'm a complete novice who loves dancing and music. The reality is, my nerves are nothing compared to the journey the teens and their families have to go through who are supported by Teens Unite. I feel privileged to be able to help and I can't think of a better way to celebrate five years clear from cancer and my 50th Birthday."
