STRICTLY chiefs have drawn up security measures for this year’s live show in Blackpool in November following fresh threats.
Bosses fear the stars are increasingly becoming targets for thugs when out in public.

Some were sent death threats weeks after professional dancer Giovanni Pernice, 29, was attacked by moped muggers.
A source said: “The dancers and celebs are more at risk away from the London studios which are protected by security.
“So, for this year’s Blackpool trip, the producers are taking no risks. Everyone will be briefed on how to protect themselves.”
Dancer Nancy Xu’s bodyguard boyfriend Mikee Michele is helping draw up the measures.

Fellow professional AJ Pritchard, 24, was targeted by yobs in a Cheshire nightclub last year.
