INSOLVENCY'S biggest names will be dancing strictly style in a bid to raise money for cervical cancer charity the Debbie Fund.
For one night only eight couples will battle it out including:
* Deloitte partner Louise Brittain with law firm MAB's partner Andrew Bowden-Brown, together they'll be doing the cha cha
* Insolvency trade body president Frances Coulson with TSB head of commercial finance Roger Brown tangoing
* Kingston Smith partner Ian Defty and MHA MacIntyre Hudson director Georgina Eason foxtrotting
* And Smith & Williamson partner Finbarr O'Connell with MHA's corporate recovery manager Jessica Kane - they'll be re-enacting Pulp Fiction.
If that's not enough...
The winners will receive a glitterball trophy and all costumes have already been worn on BBC's strictly come dancing.
Although TS understands that Simon Cowell's diary is packed, former strictly contestant Laila Rouass and ex-Eastender Natalie Cassidy will give judges comments, while BBC's Bleak House actor Nathaniel Parker will co-host the event alongside MAB partner Christina Fitzgerald - who's the brain child behind the event.
Organised by R3, apparently they'll be a group dance off then individual show downs. Each person who attends the event will be able to make a donation and vote for their favourite couple. The couple with the most money wins.
The TS desk is rubbing its hands with glee and trying to plot ways to sneak a cameraman into the event.
