Fans of Strictly Come Dancing eagerly await tomorrow’s final to find out who will lift the coveted glitterball trophy. Since 2012, the North East’s Vicky Gill has ensured that the celebrities’ and their professional partners’ dance costumes sparkle each and every week. No mean feat as it is, but for the week of the final there’s even more pressure – with multiple costumes needed for this year’s finalists Jamie Laing, Maisie Smith, Bill Bailey and HRVY.
After studying at Newcastle College, Vicky headed down south to try her luck in costume design and boy, has that decision paid off! Strictly aside, Vicky has also designed for Kylie Minogue’s stage shows, Girls Aloud and Cheryl. We spoke to Vicky about winding down after being part of such a huge TV show, missing her native North East and her glamorous job.
