STRICTLY Come Dancing followers had been baffled when a BBC channel launched an additional identify for the 2022 sequence.
Some had been left scratching their heads after a tweet introduced that Nessa from Gavin & Stacey can be showing on the dance present.

What’s occurring?” Nessa is bringing Barry Island to the ballroom because the twentieth celeb contestant confirmed for #Strictly 2022.”
The publish included an image of the no-nonsense character, who’s performed by Ruth Jones in Gavin & Stacey, in opposition to the Strictly backdrop.
Some shortly clocked the publish as a joke, however others took it at face worth.
One follower wrote: “OMG, cannot wait” whereas one other raved: “I imply that’s BLOODY AMAZING.”
The account later admitted the tweet was a joke – not least as a result of Nessa is a fictional character.
Plus, there are solely 15 contestants on Strictly they usually have already been introduced – with The Solar revealing the complete line-up this morning.
One fan replied: “Merciless. Very merciless. 😎.”
Ruth Jones – who co-created and wrote Gavin & Stacey with James Corden, tweeted emojis of a laughing face, dancing girl and a disco ball.
