Meet Hamza Yassin, who will be on Strictly Come Dancing in 2022.
People who watch BBC shows like Animal Park and Countryfile will know who Hamza is.
Celebrities like Kym Marsh and Fleur East are putting on their dancing shoes and competing for the Glitterball trophy on Strictly Come Dancing 2022.
Before Strictly Come Dancing, Hamza Yassin may not have been a well-known name, but the wildlife cameraman has quickly become a fan favorite on the show.
In week three, Yassin’s Rumba put him in the bottom half of the leaderboard. This week, he will try to do better and move up the leaderboard.
According to the Strictly Come Dancing 2022 songs and dances, the Animal Park actor will dance a Salsa to Ecuador by Sash! featuring Rodriguez with partner Jowita Przystal.
And if his recent comments are any indication, it looks like it could be his week.
The two joined It Takes Two host Rylan on Monday, October 10, to talk about their routine. Yassin said, “You are going to get speed, you are going to get sass, a whole load of technique, lifts, excitement, there are a lot of lifts.”
Jowita also said: “We are going there. There are a lot of lifts, and the routine is crazy. We want to get to the top.”
When asked what they need to work on, Jowita said, “I won’t lie, the pace is fast, but we’re getting there.” Yassin added, “I am having a whale of a time, and I get to share it with this one.”
Here’s what you need to know about the Strictly Come Dancing contestant.
Who is Hamza Yassin ???
Hamza is known to viewers as one of the hosts of BBC’s Animal Park and as a guest presenter on BBC’s Countryfile, where he talks to viewers about wildlife.
He played Ranger Hamza on the live-action CBeebies show Let’s Go for a Walk, which is how younger viewers will know him.
Hamza was born in Sudan and moved to Scotland when he was younger. There, he was able to follow his dream of filming Scottish wildlife and becoming a wildlife cameraman.
Hamza Yassin’s Jive in the first week of the competition made him a dancer to watch. However, since then, he has slipped further down the leaderboard. After his Rumba last weekend, the Countryfile star is now in 10th place.
What has Hamza Yassin said about being on Strictly Come Dancing in 2022?
Hamza Yassin said this about getting on the dance floor: “I am over the moon to be joining Strictly 2022. I never, ever, ever thought I’d be on such a cool show.”
He kept going: “I’ve been watching it for years, and I can’t believe I’ll be there dancing in front of the British public. My dancing skills are at the “1970s disco vibe” level right now, but I’m ready to work hard and will shake it every chance I get – “shake it until you make it!”
