The hospice is giving 10 acts the chance to swap their slippers for sequins and join them on November 2 for its very own version of the competition, Strictly Come Movies.

Event organiser Jake Amos said: "We have an exciting opportunity for ten acts to take part in this year's show.

"Whether you have two left feet or are a dab hand at dad dancing, we'd love you to join us! You don't have to have any previous dance experience, simply choose your favourite movie dance to perform or pick a style and our professional teacher will make sure you are prepared for our grand finale."

So far, Uma Thurman and John Travolta's Pulp Fiction performance has already been bagged by contestants Liz Peel and Michael Broadbent, who have already signed up for Strictly Come Movies.

He said: "I haven't done any dancing for many years, but I'm looking forward to trying something new and helping to raise much-needed funds for the hospice."

Joining Liz and Michael will be a group of four local ladies who will be learning the tap routine from La La Land.

All participants will receive lessons ahead of the event at the Spirella Building in Letchworth on November 2.

Dancers will also receive comments from the judging panel, Love Island finalist and face of Pretty Little Thing, Molly-Mae Hague, ex-Arsenal footballer Ian Allinson, Comet and Royston Crow editor Nick Gill and hospice chairman John Procter.
