Sad news for the Strictly family

The close knit family that is Strictly Come Dancing is in mourning, with the loss of their founding producer, Richard Hopkins, who succumbed to cancer at just 47 years old this weekend.

Richard was responsible for reviving the show, which had ceased being produced as Come Dancing in 1998, with the new format featuring celebrities going live in 2004. He leaves a wife and three daughters.

On a happier note, Jason Donovan is back in the recording studio, while Robin Cousins will step into the dainty shoes of the Teen Angel in the touring stage production of Grease.
