When does SCD start? Does it clash with his existing show?
I think it starts in September. Looking at his website, I don't there'd be a clash, but I doubt he'd be interested in Strictly or Strictly in him. Perhaps it's a wind up, or maybe there's another Michael Clark. Or the OP's confusing him with Michael Ball ....

The only Michael Clark I've heard of runs a dance company that mostly specialises in modern ballet. But it's hardly an unusual name - there could be loads others.

Any link for this? Not that I'm doubting you, but I'll take this thread with a pinch of salt.
To be honest I would rather have a judge who is there because of their merit rather than their sex.

The BBC in their wisdom have decided that the line up should be:

2 males judges.

1 female judge.

1 old man doing the links.

1 attractive woman (not to everyone's liking) to make the old man look good and stop him falling down the stairs.

An equal number of male and female professional dancers.

1 older male celeb and 1 older female celeb to avoid accusations of ageism, plus a selection of Z-list celebs hoping to revive their careers and a sprinkling of sportspeople to partner the professional dancers.

Dave Arch and his orchestra.

A couple of whippers-up to encourage the audience to behave like a screaming mob.




In other words, a winning recipe for a Saturday night.


So the replacement during Bruno's absence has to be a male judge.

Perhaps he is a friend of Darcies, is there a photo of this mystery man yet

He isn't a mystery man. Michael Clark is a Scottish dancer and choreographer. His picture is easily found by googling. I could post a link, but if I found him so can anyone else.

I saw him and his company in 1984 at the RNCM in Manchester. Totally gorgeous and gifted chap who used to dance with various part of his anatomy on show, lol!

He comes on at about 1.22 in the video. Warning - nudity involved!
