Local hero and gymnast Louis Smith MBE is back on the box in BBC One’s new Saturday night entertainment show, Tumble – but this time he’s a judge!
Fresh from more medal success at the Commonwealth Games Louis is helping promote gymnastics further with this great new show.
The celebrities vaulting, tumbling and flipping head-over-heels in a bid to win the public’s votes are current world boxing champion Carl Froch, Girls Aloud star Sarah Harding, Blue Peter’s Peter Duncan, EastEnders actor John Partridge and Loose Women host Andrea McLean.
Also joining the celebrity line-up are TOWIE star Lucy Mecklenburgh, BAFTA Award-winning Wolfblood actor Bobby Lockwood, Sugababe Amelle Berrabah, Dynasty icon Emma Samms and Ian ‘H’ Watkins from Steps.
Having been under the spotlight himself competing in Strictly Come Dancing, which he won in 2012, Louis is now on the other side of the floor in a judge’s seat alongside world-renowned Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci, Commonwealth Games gymnastics champion turned sports broadcaster Craig Heap and world-renowned cirque artist/aerial performer Sebastien Stella.
Louis brought some of his fellow medal-winning gymnastic stars together for an amazing performance at the end of the first show so if you missed out, catch that on iPlayer and make sure you tune in to Tumble on Saturday nights to see our local star scoring the celebs!
