The 33-year-old, who won Strictly last year,  will be talking about his younger life in Sudan and his travels around the world.

His talk, My Life Behind the Lens, will be in partnership with Norfolk Wildlife Trust.

Danie Hadley, marketing and communications manager of the festival, said: “Hamza’s event will give audiences the chance to hear stories straight from the Strictly star.

The news comes off the back of Hamza’s Strictly Birds of Prey documentary being screened by the BBC in September.

Natalie Bailey, director of engagement at Norfolk Wildlife Trust (NWT), added: “We may be nature lovers at NWT but there are definitely some avid Strictly fans here too.

"We are delighted to be teaming up with Norwich Science Festival to bring Hamza to Norwich.

“We are hoping he might have some spare time to visit NWT Cley and Salthouse Marshes while he is here.”
