Harry Judd into final of Strictly Come Dancing

Jason Donovan joins gay mag pin-up in the final of ballroom dancing show

Harry Judd into final of Strictly Come Dancing
11 December 2011

Boyband drummer Harry Judd is through to the final of British TV competition Strictly Come Dancing.

The ballroom and Latin dancing competition will finish live on BBC next week.

Judd, the drummer from pop-rock band McFly, has repeatedly stripped off for UK gay magazine Attitude and is the current cover star – named by the magazine as the ‘sexiest man of the year’.

Also through to the final is Jason Donovan, a former star of Australian soap Neighbours and pop singer, who successfully sued magazine The Face in 1992 for libel after they alleged he was gay.

English actor Chelseee Healey is the third contestant to make it through but Australian model, actor and singer Holly Vallance lost the public vote.

Openly gay TV astrologer Russell Grant was the unlikely people’s hero in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing but got knocked out of the contest in week eight.
