Strictly Come Dancing winner bags brand new BBC show – and it’s worlds away from the ballroom | The Sun

A STRICTLY Come Dancing star has bagged a brand new BBC show – and it's worlds away from the ballroom.

Current reigning champion Hamza Yassin will be back on screens soon with a completely different show.

He's landed his very own BBC One series that taps into his love for nature and the great outdoors.

In a special, one-off show, Hamza will film his favourite birds of prey across the UK.

Last year the 33-year-old was working on the Beeb's Wild Isles when he was asked to join the Strictly lineup.

The presenter did just that and swapped his waterproof hiking boots for dancing shoes.

Now he will reunite with the videographers he worked on Wild Isles with, including Simon King and John Aitchison.

Speaking about the show, Hamza said: "Birds of prey are powerful, majestic, beautiful, charismatic, intelligent.

"What I think of when I wake up, what I dream about."

Hamza is no stranger to wildlife programmes, having presented on Countryfile and also on The One Show.

Meanwhile, Hamza returned to Strictly last weekend as the brand new series kicked off.

He was reduced to tears as he reunited with his pro dance partner Jowita Przystał.

Hamza was invited back to perform one last time with Jowita, with the couple choosing their fabulous Salsa.

The pair were as good as they ever were, and afterwards, an emotional Hamza paid tribute to his pro partner and Strictly.

Hamza: Strictly Birds of Prey airs this Sunday at 7pm on BBC One and iPlayer.
