The Greatest Dancer judges – Cheryl, Oti Mabuse, and Matthew Morrison are presenting the BBC show

Former X Factor judge Cheryl Tweedy, Glee's Matthew Morrison and Strictly professional dancer Oti Mabuse are all judges for the show. Here's the lowdown…

The judges or Dance Captains – as they're called on the show – will all choose three acts to train and take to the final.

There, the dancers will be in with a chance to win £50,000 cash and perform as a guest on Strictly Come Dancing.

Who are the Dance Captains?

First up, there's former X Factor judge and pop superstar Cheryl Tweedy, 35.

After 11 years as part of girl group Girls Aloud, the singer launched a solo career and went on to become a judge on ITV's X Factor.

This will be Cheryl's first major role after a four-year break that saw her give birth to son, Bear, and end her relationship with former One Direction singer, Liam Payne.

Since being announced as a judge on the new show Cheryl has been panned by fans for her 'mum-dancing' who claim she has 'limited experience'.

Next on the panel is actor and Broadway star Matthew Morrison, 40, who starred as Mr. Schue on Fox's hit show, Glee.

The award-winning actor studied musical theatre, vocal performance and dance at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts.

He has danced and sung in hit musicals Footloose,  Hairspray and 10 Million Miles.

The father-of-one revealed in an exclusive interview with The Sun's Fabulous that he believes 'anyone can learn to dance'.

Last but not least is Strictly Come Dancing professional Oti Mabuse, 28.

Although the beauty studied Civil Engineering at university, dancing was always her true passion, specialising in Latin American and ballroom.

A member of the Strictly family since 2015, the dance champion has travelled the world collecting title after title, winning the South African Latin American Championships eight times.

The Greatest Dancer continues on Saturday, 2 February on BBC One at 7.30pm.
