Darrien Wright (born 26 April 1985) partnered Hollie Robertson in the second series of BBC One show Strictly Dance Fever. They won the competition on 3 June 2006, beating Darren Bailey and Lana Williams into second place.

As part of their prize, Darrien and Hollie won a professional dance contract. This culminated early in July 2006 when, for a week, the pair took to the West End stage as background dancers in Footloose (musical) in London's Novello Theatre. David Essex and Cheryl Baker also starred in the show.

Wright is from Darlington, is trained by Andy Cane in Disco Freestyle, and cites John Travolta as his dance hero. In 2007 he picked up the Citizen of the Year title in the Best of Darlington awards.[1]

He is currently appearing in the UK tour of Fame alongside dance partner Hollie Robertson.
