Hamza Yassin must have accumulated a decent sum as a wildlife cameraman. Sudanese-born Yassin is recently in the limelight as a contestant in Strictly Come Dancing.

The awaited Strictly Come Dancing 2022 returned for its 20th series with a launch show on September 23, 2022, on BBC One. The live shows began the following day on September 24. Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly retired as hosts of the show.

Week seven of the show saw Hamze and his partner Jowita Przystal lit a fire on the stage as they pulled off a phenomenal Cha Cha Cha to I Can't Help Myself by the Four Tops. The pair set the bar high for the evening as they amassed an incredible three 10s with 38 points.

The dancing partners topped the entire leadership with their amazing performance. The wildlife presenter's dance was breathtaking as the Queen of Latin herself, Shirley Ballas, admitted it the best Cha Cha Cha she'd ever seen.

Head judge Ballas commented on the marvelous performance and thanked the duo for opening the show like that. "It was amazing," she added. The judge felt overwhelmed and emotional, referring to their dance as the true language of the cha cha cha.

She could not stop praising Yassin's beautiful movements and cheeky smile. Anton Du Beke also added: "It was brilliant." He further said that it would be a great night if the evening went this way.

The same year, he served as a presenter for Scotland: Escape to the Wilderness, a four-part series on Channel 4 that took four celebrities (Baroness Warsi, Richard Coles, Ben Miller, and Martin Clunes) to the wilds around Scotland, showing them the local wildlife.

Normally knee-deep in grass, wading through mud and following animals in the wild locations, 2022 saw the wildlife photographer on the other side of the camera being viewed by millions alongside partner Jowita Przystal on Strictly Come Dancing.

He had a love of wildlife from his African background. Growing up, he always loved animals and was passionate about working with them. His Kilchaon neighbors claim credit for bringing out his inner dancing talent by getting him involved in village ceilidhs.

Meet Hamza Yassin Wife -Married Life

Hamza Yassin hardly speaks about his wife, leaving many guessing whether he is married or single.

Little is known about the Countryfile star's private life. However, a 2017 post may have hinted at his beloved 'wifey' as he lifts a beautiful woman over his head in the picture. The Sudanese-born photographer has been on the public radar for a good few years.

Nevertheless, the Sudanese-born star may have hinted at having a loving wife in a cryptic social media post in 2017. Hamza uploaded a picture of himself and a woman in the Scottish wilderness. He was holding her in a deadlift above his head.

Hamza captioned the post, "Find a wifey and up her up, and all year long, you'll get good luck!" He continued, "During the day a wildlife cameraman, by night, a strongman!" The post certainly raised more curiosity about his marriage among his fans.

Although the Strictly star did not name the woman, the lift will be eerily familiar to Strictly fans, as he and Jowita wowed the judges and audience with the same pose when he danced the salsa.

His sensational Salsa moves impressed the judges and the crowd, earning the dancing partner a standing ovation. The duo gained a near-perfect 29 points, receiving 10s from every judge except Craig Revel Horwood.
