Jo's lined up for roo-union in Blackpool.

BUSH kangaroo Jo Wood is hopping back to Strictly Come Dancing today - but she won't be strutting her stuff.

Rolling Stone RonnieWood's estranged wife was booted off the show two weeks ago and thought she was missing the special show in Blackpool - the home of ballroom dancing.

Even though judge Craig Revel Horwood dubbed her a "bush kangaroo", Jo has been asked to "give hopefuls encouragement" at a special event before the BBC 1 show.

She will join former Strictly winner Karen Hardy for two free mass dancing events at the world-famous Winter Gardens. Organisers hope hundreds will take part. Jo, 53,said: "I can't wait. I had a blast on the show. I loved every minute of it.

"And my feet are perfect now. They were a bit sore every week. A bit achy."

Hosts Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly will be joined by the nine remaining couples in the competition at the Tower Ballroom.

It's the first time the show has been filmed in Blackpool since the final of series two when actress Jill Halfpenny was the champ.
