Strictly Come Dancing returns for its eleventh series this Saturday (7th September) and Sir Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daley will welcome the likes of Abbey Clancy, Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Ashley Taylor Dawson, Julian Macdonald and more to the dancefloor. See ALL the celebrity contestants here…
It looks like it’s Peter Crouch’s turn to cheer from the sidelines as his model wife, Abbey Clancy takes to the dancefloor.
Soap fans can look forward to watching Hollyoaks hottie Ashley Taylor Dawson, AKA Darren Osborne, strutting his stuff on the dancefloor.
Best known for her hit songs ‘Murder On The Dance Floor’ and ‘If This Ain’t Love’, we’re looking forward to seeing if Sophie is as good on the dancefloor as she is with a microphone.
Fashion designer Julian Macdonald certainly knows how to work sequins, but will he still look good once the competition really gets started.
Vanessa Feltz currently spends most of her time presenting her radio show, but it’s now time for her to get back in front of the camera.
The 49-year-old actor is best known for his role as Martin ‘Ash’ Ashford on Casualty.
The BBC Breakfast presenter is apparently “really excited” about taking part in the Strictly experience, but is already feeling the strain of the training schedule!
The 47-year-old is known for starring in Waterloo Road as maths teacher Daniel ‘Chalky’ Chalk.
Known as Kirsty Soames in Corrie, 29-year-old Natalie will also be joining the line-up.
He might know how to cook up a storm in the kitchen, but does this Hairy Biker know how to work it on the dancefloor?
Rachel is a whizz with words and numbers on Countdown but does she have a talent for ballroom?
Ben is a rugby union player and set up The Ben Cohen StandUp Foundation to combat homophobia and bullying in schools and sports.
Businesswoman Deborah Meaden knows how to handle the heat as one of the Dragons’ Den investors, but will this help her on the dnacefloor?
Tony Jacklin is one of the most successful British golfers of all time (apparently), but we’ll have to see how good of a dancer he is before he gets our seal of approval.
Fiona Fullerton is a real-life Bond girl after starring alongside Roger Moore in 1985’s A View to a Kill. Perhaps 007 taught her a few smooth moves she can put to good use.
