Cheryl and Oti Mabuse shone in sequins at the launch of the second series of The Greatest Dancer.

The two stars, who are dance captains on the BBC show, brought a touch of sparkle to the launch event at London’s Soho Hotel on Monday morning, where they posed on the red carpet with presenter Alesha Dixon.

Cheryl wore a shimmering silver jumpsuit while Strictly Come Dancing professional Mabuse chose a long-sleeved green dress with floral embellishments.

Dixon, who recently welcomed her second child, wore a blazer-style minidress in houndstooth print with exaggerated puffed sleeves, paired with dramatic jewellery.

Cheryl and Mabuse were joined by fellow dance captain Matthew Morrison and singer and choreographer Todrick Hall, a new addition to the show’s line-up for 2020.

Hall, who co-produced the video for his friend Taylor Swift’s single You Need To Calm Down earlier this year, appeared to already be one of the gang, giving Cheryl a kiss on the cheek on the red carpet.

Dixon’s co-presenter Jordan Banjo was also present for the photocall, along with Love Island finalist Curtis Pritchard.

The reality star, who was formerly a professional dancer on the Irish edition of Dancing With The Stars, will be the show’s receptionist, welcoming contestants to the studio before their auditions.

14-year-old Ellie Ferguson, who was mentored by Mabuse, was crowned winner of The Greatest Dancer’s first series earlier this year.

Ferguson, who wowed viewers with her solo contemporary routines, won a £50,000 prize and appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in November.

The Greatest Dancer returns to BBC One in 2020.
