You've seen the national celebrities strut their stuff on BBC TV's Strictly Come Dancing on Saturday nights.

Now, the BBC in the South West presents a Come Dancing special: Strictly for Pudsey.

Here's your chance to see BBC South West's stars do their bit in a Strictly for Pudsey event for Children in Need.

All tickets for 'Strictly for Pudsey' have been reserved, and the special ticket line has closed.

We can reveal that some of the faces and voices from BBC TV and radio in the South West will be taking part, assisted by professional dance partners who are giving their time free of charge. BBC Radio Cornwall will be represented by James Churchfield, Debbie McCrory, Rosie Dunkley and Matt Pengelly.

The panel of judges will also feature local celebrities, who'll be looking at the dance routines and seeing who has the most fun on the dancefloor! Together with the audience, they'll choose who is crowned Strictly for Pudsey BBC South West Dance Champion!
