Strictly Come Dancing star opts for ‘intimate’ wedding to celebrity DJ

Previously said 'it's just for us'

In Strictly Come Dancing news, one star is reportedly planning a “simple” wedding for their marriage to another celebrity.

BBC Radio 1 host Vick Hope is believed to have got engaged to DJ Calvin Harris last year.

She previously took part in the 2018 series of Strictly, pairing up with Graziano di Prima for the BBC dance competition.

Vick, 33, was the fourth famous face eliminated from that sixteenth run of Strictly – and her exit proved controversial at the time.

That’s because she and Graziano were eliminated in the dance off against comedian Seann Walsh and Katya Jones.

And at the time, it was only days after Seann and Katya had hit the headlines after being photographed kissing in a London street.

Shortly after her Strictly departure, Vick came under focus herself after she pondered her exit on her radio show. She claimed to have witnessed production crew and judges chatting before the decision was announced.

Vick said at the time: “It was very strange. So after the dance off the judges have to give their decisions but there was a bit of a conflab with some producers and then they gave their decisions, and it was just stunned silence in the studio, it was a really weird atmosphere.”

Vick Hope and Calvin Harris

Presenter Vick was the subject of much happier stories in May 2022 following reports she was engaged after seeing hitmaker Calvin for five months.

Now The Sun claims the couple will celebrate their happy day in upcoming months.

A source is said to have told the tabloid: “Calvin and Vick have kept their relationship out of the public eye for the most part, so aren’t having a massive wedding to parade their love in front of the world.

Calvin and Vick have kept their relationship out of the public eye for the most part.

“Instead they want it to be a much more intimate and simple day.

“They have been planning it for months and everything is now coming together. They want it to be a really special occasion for themselves and their nearest and dearest.”
