A number of big Strictly Come Dancing names have signed on as guest judges for new BBC Three dating series I Like The Way U Move.

The show, which is hosted by Made in Chelsea and Strictly alum Jamie Laing, will follow single professional dancers and rookie non-dancers as they compete to find their perfect partner both on and off the dance floor.

A guest judge will join resident dancer expert Kaelynn 'KK' Harris each week, helping to decide which couple has the best routine.

Set to appear on the series are Strictly pros Oti Mabuse, Johannes Radebe, Giovanni Pernice and former contestants Clara Amfo and Maisie Smith.

Also on board are Dancing on Ice semi-finalist Lady Leshurr and Everybody's Talking About Jamie stage star Layton Williams.

"I loved working on I Like the Way U Move," Oti said. "It was entertaining, raw and sexy. I had such fun working alongside Jamie Lang and Kaelynn 'KK' Harris. It's a fresh and different way of looking at dance and dating! I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we did."

Johannes added: "The cast was a bunch of beautiful people, and I loved the jeopardy where they had to dance in order to stay in the competition... it's thrilling and entertaining and I can't wait for everyone at home to see it."

Strictly has just passed its third week of live shows for the current series. Oti, Johannes and Giovanni are all still in the competition, partnered with Ugo Monye, John Whaite and Rose Ayling-Ellis, respectively.

I Like The Way U Move will be available as a boxset on BBC iPlayer from Sunday, October 17. Strictly Come Dancing 2021 continues on Saturday (October 16) on BBC One.
