Following that, she enrolled in the 18th TVB Acting Class and entered the entertainment industry.

Along with nine other TVB artists, Wu went to Hunan in April 2008 to participate in the show Strictly Come Dancing - Season Two. She became the first participant of the show to achieve full marks in her individual dance. She also achieved full marks twice in the dance with her partner, Nathan Lee. Nancy and her partner were the favourites to win but came third place in the competition. Due to the number of full marks achieve in the competition, Nancy was given the title "Full Marks Dance Queen". Strictly Come Dancing - Season Two also brought Nancy a lot of functions regarding dance, and because of this colleagues in TVB have given her a nickname "TVB Dance Girl".
