IT is one of the biggest shows on television and it seems Swansea can't wait for its very own version.

The Evening Post is busy putting together the final preparations for its Strictly Swansea spectacular, which is due to take place in October.

And the charity evening is on course to be awarded top marks by the public, as tickets have been snapped up quicker than an immaculately danced Charleston.

More than 300 tickets for the glitzy evening were sold in just 24 hours, meaning the event is well on course to be a sell-out when it is held at the Oceana nightclub on Sunday, October 7.

Lisa Cameron, commercial director with South West Wales Media, the Evening Post's parent company, said: "The response has been phenomenal, we do many events each year but this has exceeded all our expectations.

"It's the first of its kind in Swansea and this type of event will appeal to all people of all ages."

Despite the huge sales, there are still standing tickets on sale for the event, available at £15.

The evening will feature the likes of Gavin and Stacey star Melanie Walters, Swansea Sound DJ Kev Johns and Mumbles businesswoman Lara Johnson, battling it out on the dancefloor.

They will be hoping to impress celebrity couple Camilla Dallerup and Kevin Sacre, who will be casting their expert eyes over our ensemble of dancers.

Camilla will be well placed to decide who has the best feet after winning the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing competition in 2008.

Completing the line-up of dancers will be former Miss Wales beauty Sara Manchipp, crooner Jimi Webb, La Parrilla general manager Juan Hernandez and Moda clothing store owner Richard Jones.

Each of the competitors will be put through their paces by the Swansea-based Demarco's Dance School and will be raising money for a chosen charity.

Tickets for the evening will be sold on a first come first serve basis.
