Originally hailing from Auckland, Erin Boag moved to England in 1996 with the intention of building her career for a few years - but she ended up staying. Nowadays she is probably best known for appearing on the first 10 seasons of the popular BBC celebrity dance contest, Strictly Come Dancing, where she has partnered with the likes of comedian Julian Clary, Manchester United's Peter Schmeichel and Olympic hurdler Colin Jackson. Erin and her dance partner of 24 years, Anton Du Beke, were on the last leg of their tour when the UK's Covid-19 lockdowns kicked in - and they had to cancel a slew of 2021 dates - but now the pair are looking forward to a dance down the Danube.
