Stars of the hit TV series Strictly Come Dancing are flocking to Thanet for practice sessions, according to BBC insiders.
'The island has ideal facilities for celebrities and professional dancers alike,' a Strictly producer told the Gazunder. 'Where else could they practice their steps just by walking down the street?'
Performers such as EastEnders' Letitia Dean and Kent's own Kelly Brook have apparently praised islanders for providing plenty of pavement obstacles such as crushed White Lightning cans, chewing gum and barkers' nests, all of which have to be carefully avoided on the average trip to the shops.
'It's true,' confirmed a BBC spokesman. 'Many of the dancers on Strictly have been training in Thanet.' And he added: 'Where else could you nip out for 20 Rothmans and end up doing a perfect cha-cha-cha?'
