BBC announce Gavin and Stacey star Nessa has signed for Strictly – but fans are confused | The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing fans were baffled when a BBC channel released an extra name for the 2022 series.

Some were left scratching their heads after a tweet announced that Nessa from Gavin & Stacey would be appearing on the dance show.


BBC Three posted: "✨ Oh! What's occurring?" Nessa is bringing Barry Island to the ballroom as the 20th celebrity contestant confirmed for #Strictly 2022."

The post included a picture of the no-nonsense character, who is played by Ruth Jones in Gavin & Stacey, against the Strictly backdrop.

Some quickly clocked the post as a joke, but others took it at face value.

One follower wrote: "OMG, can't wait" while another raved: "I mean that’s BLOODY AMAZING."

The account later admitted the tweet was a joke – not least because Nessa is a fictional character.

Plus, there are only 15 contestants on Strictly and they have already been announced – with The Sun revealing the full line-up this morning.

One fan replied: "Cruel. Very cruel. 😎."

Ruth Jones – who co-created and wrote Gavin & Stacey with James Corden, tweeted emojis of a laughing face, dancing woman and a disco ball.
