Sky1 To Encore Nickelodeon UK's "Jordan & Perri's Ultimate Block Party" Sunday's At 6pm From 12th January 2014

Nickelodeon UK Star Perri Kiely and Sky TV UK's "Sky Guide" website have announced the exciting Nick UK news that Sky1 (also known as Sky One), a subscription entertainment channel in the UK and Ireland, will start to encore the first series of Nickelodeon UK and Sky 1 HD's dance-themed reality series "Jordan & Perri's Ultimate Block Party" every Sunday at 6:00pm from 12th January 2014 (repeated one-hour later at 7:00pm on Sky1's plus-one timeshift channel, Sky1 +1)!

A joint commission for Nickelodeon UK and Sky 1 HD, "Jordan & Perri's Ultimate Block Party" is an 8 episode x 30 minute series produced by Princess Productions that will see Jordan Banjo and Perri Kiely, of British street dance troupe Diversity fame, do what they do best – teaching kids their best street dance routines, whilst throwing the ultimate surprise parties. Since the show was announced in February 2013, excited kids from across the UK have sent in their applications. They've also invited some of their showbiz pals to help with the party planning so expect cool music, crazy moves and a few surprises for the party goers!

Throughout the series Jordan and Perri will help to decide the theme of each of the parties, as they put performers through their paces during intense dance rehearsals. Not only will the headline act be put to the test, but guests will also get a chance to show off their signature moves – no dad dancing allowed! And not forgetting the viewers at home, who will be able to learn step-by-step some of Jordan and Perri's routines!

The series will feature several British dance groups, including:

The Irish Dancers - consisting of Mollie, 10, Ella, 9, Bonnie, 12, Caitlin, 11, Brien, 11, Amy, 10, Jonjo, 12, and Erin, 12 - a group of friends from London have all attended an Irish Dance school for the past five years.

The Blackpool Bunch - consisting of Charlotte, 11, Ben, 10, Abigail, 11, Shauna, 11, Maisie, 11, Vinny, 9, and Ethan, 11 - a group of seven cheeky members who have attended the Urban Dance Project school in the heart of Blackpool for the past two years.

The Break Dancers - consisting of Jayden, 13, Cameron, 11, Ethan, 11, Liam, 13, and Kenny, 12 - a dance group of five young boys from a sleepy-village in the Welsh Valleys who have formed their own crew called the Vortex Breakdancers.

Throughout the series there'll also be surprises aplenty from celebrity guests such as Olympic Bronze Medallist, gymnast Beth Tweddle, girl band Stooshe and Diversity's very own Ashley Banjo. They'll help the groups in the style stakes, plus provide advice on performance nerves, working under pressure and that all important sense of group timing. Plus, there's also tons of Nickelodeon's trademark famous green slime involved!

"Jordan & Perri's Ultimate Block Party" series one debuted on Nickelodeon UK and Ireland and Nickelodeon HD UK on Friday 7th June 2013.

Perri Kiely can currently be seen in the second series of ITV's "Splash!" competing alongside fellow Nickelodeon UK presenter Anna Williamson.
