Strictly Come Dancing Portable Toilet Hire

John Anderson Hire supply toilet hire units at Strictly Come Dancing final

Monday 3 February, 2020

John Anderson Hire are very proud to have played a part in one of the BBC’s most successful programmes, Strictly Come Dancing. John Anderson Hire were employed by BBC Studioworks Ltd to supply luxury toilet hire units for the Strictly Come Dancing series. This included supporting the Saturday night show hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman and Strictly Take 2 presented by Zoe Ball and Rylan Clark-Neal. John Anderson Hire portable event toilets were used by the Elstree Studios in Borehamwood, Hertfordshire every Saturday night during the autumn by the audience watching the live dancing shows.

Why did Strictly programme organisers choose John Anderson Hire toilet units?

Anyone attending the Strictly Come Dancing show used the John Anderson Hire toilet units. BBC Studioworks Ltd hired our toilet units as we could supply enough units for the dancing audience. The units were the highest quality and were built to a high standard, containing several toilets and handbasins. Power was required to operate the pumps, lighting and hot water and heating. Each unit was supplied with all consumables including hand towels, toilet tissue, soap and air fresheners, so anyone using them had a home from home experience. The toilet units had a holding tank for waste and a permanent connection to mains or generated electrical power supply.

Elstree studios host Strictly Come Dancing series and other popular TV programmes

Strictly Come Dancing is one of the most popular TV shows produced by the BBC. This year 11.7 million people watched the final of Strictly Come Dancing and saw Emmerdale actor Kelvin Fletcher and Oti Mabuse win the glitter ball trophy. Strictly Come Dancing is filmed at Elstree studios but it’s not the only well-known film or TV programme made there. Other shows filmed at the studio include The Crown, the Voice, The Chase and Have I Got News For You.
