To coincide with the upcoming finale of Strictly Come Dancing Series 15, BBC Worldwide has formed a new partnership with John Adams Leisure to produce/manufacture and distribute the first ever official Strictly Come Dancing board game.

Suitable for players aged 8+, the game which features questions about the show, dance and general knowledge, is designed for all the family, giving everyone the chance to take part in the fun and immersive game playing experience. The game will include a battery operated revolving glitter ball speaker.

We are confident the game will become one of the must-have family board games of 2018, full national distribution for the product is already looking very positive.”

BBC Worldwide has also recently inked a deal with UK confectioner Kinnerton to make eight SKUs of seasonal chocolates for the Strictly Come Dancing brand.
