Strictly Come Dancing fans will get a treat next Friday – there�s a one-off Sport Relief special featuring some gorgeous Albert Square dancers.

And to mark the occasion, our sister mag TV Times did a photo-shoot EastEnders actresses, Gemma Bissix and Kara Tointon, plus England cricketer Darren Gough.

In an extra special twist, the one-off will see five former Strictly celebrity contestants paired with dance novices from the worlds of showbiz and sport.

Gemma, who plays the Clare Bates, was thrilled to learn she�d be dancing with Darren, who waltzed away as the winner in series three and is the reigning Champion of Champions.

“Darren�s got a fantastic sense of humour and I�m crazy, so we work well together,” laughs Gemma.

Kara (Dawn Swann) didn’t do too badly in being paired with series four winner Mark Ramprakash. Also taking to the floor are series four runner-up Matt Dawson with West End star Elaine Paige, series two finalist Denise Lewis with former footballer David Ginola, and series two hoofer Roger Black with British long-jumper Jade Johnson.
