September 21st 2019 sees Strictly Come Dancing’s first live show take place! The competition as a-go as the cast and pros have been practising for their first routine and polishing their performance.
Everyone from sporting stars to music buffs is taking part in the 2019 series including David James and Saffron Barker. DJ Dev Griffin is also trying his hand at dancing this year.
He’s had success with his radio career. But will Dev be taking home the Glitterball trophy in 2019? Paired up with professional dancer Diane Buswell, Dev’s got a good chance at waltzing his way to the final!
Dev Griffin: Height
Although there are no exact figures available, we’d estimate that Dev is around 5 ft 10.
His partner, Dianne, is 5ft 3 so the pair may struggle to be in-sync with one another.
Dianne’s partner in 2018 was Joe Sugg who stands at 5 ft 8. Diane and Joe came in second place in last year’s competition.
