Everything you need to know about Greatest Dancer receptionist Amelia Wilson

The Strictly Come Dancing-shaped TV hole has thankfully been filled by The Greatest Dancer, which became a must-watch when it debuted on BBC1 last Saturday.

It’s the brain child of Simon Cowell and features his former X Factor judge Cheryl as a mentor alongside Oti Mabuse and Matthew Morrison.

The hosts are Britain’s Got Talent’s  Alesha Dixon  and Diversity’s Jordan Banjo, who will introduce the dancers and show each week.

However, it was a the cheeky receptionist Amelia Wilson who stole the show.

Here’s all you need to know about her.

Who is Amelia Wilson?

Amelia shot to fame last weekend after appearing on the show as the receptionist, who greets the dancers backstage and chats to them about their audition.

She is not actually a receptionist…

Amelia works for Thames TV, the production company which makes the show.

She’s credited as a development researcher and assistant producer.

As well as her work on The Greatest Dancer, she’s also got experience with casting and story producing.

Is she on social media?

Fans have been desperate to track her down to congratulate her on her performance, but they’ve been unable to find her social media accounts.

Mirror Online revealed she’s deliberately avoiding the attention because she’s a private person who wants to remain out of the limelight.

An insider told us: "She’s a very shy person in real life.

"She would like to remain as anonymous as possible for the time being."

When does The Greatest Dancer return to TV?

The Greatest Dancer launched on Saturday January 5 at 8pm until 9.10pm. It will continue to air every Saturday evening for another eight episodes.

The show’s format means the auditions take place behind a mirror. If the audience like them enough they vote for them to go through to the next round.

It will be available on BBCiPlayer for those who want to catch up.

How long does the series run for?

The series will run for eight episodes (seven weeks) and so the last episode, when the winner is crowned, will be Saturday February 23.
