PEEP Show’s Robert Webb has been been confirmed as a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing 2021.
But who is his wife, Abigail Burdess? Here’s all you need to know…
Who is Robert Webb's wife Abigail Burdess?
Robert married comedy performer Abigail Burdess in 2006.
The pair met on the set of a radio sketch show – The Bleak Old Shop.
David Mitchell was the best man at their wedding ceremony.
Abigail has written for television, radio and stage.
Her TV writing credits include the new series of Tracy Ullman's Show on BBC1, Watson and Oliver (BBC2), the BAFTA-nominated Sorry I've Got No Head (CBBC) and the BAFTA-winning That Mitchell & Webb Look (BBC2).
The couple live together in Kilburn, London.
Do the pair have children?
Abigail and Robert have two children together.
Of parenting daughters, Robert has said: "Parenting girls makes you quite gender-conscious – it’s almost impossible to fight the power of pink.
"It’s not such a terrible thing to want to be a princess when you’re five, but it would be nice if there were some other options."
How can I watch Strictly Come Dancing?
Fans can't wait for the new Strictly Come Dancing to get underway in 2021.
However, the BBC have not yet confirmed when the series will start.
The dancing show usually starts around the middle of September.
But the 2020 series started in mid-October, a month later than usual due to the Covid pandemic – so the 2021 series could follow suit.
Strictly Come Dancing 2021will of course be showing on BBC1 as usual.
It is expected to assume its usual 6pm slot.
It's likely that the show will also be put on BBC iPlayer as each episode airs.
Who else is in the Strictly 2021 line-up?
The other celebrities taking part in Strictly started to be announced in August 2021.
So far we have:
- Tom Fletcher – singer and band member of McFly
- AJ Odudu – TV presenter and host of Apocalypse Wow
- Rhys Stephenson – CBBC star and kids TV presenter
- John Whaite – Bake Off winner and TV chef
