Strictly Come Dancing security crisis as picture of staff pass posted online – sparking fears for stars' safety | The Sun

STRICTLY Come Dancing has been plunged into a security crisis after a picture of a staff pass was posted online.

The BBC celebrity ballroom dancing show launches this weekend for a three month run but it has already been hit by a big blunder.

The top level security of the set has been compromised after a crew member posted a picture of their pass to tens of thousands of people online.

A source revealed: “This was a huge security blunder.

“Having what the passes look like out there puts the celebrities at massive risk. 

“Anyone could copy a pass and get access to the production putting the stars at potential risk of harm. It’s a massive security breach.”
