Jamie Laing and Maisie Smith have both been confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing.

After a false start which saw him leave Strictly 2019 after the launch show due to injury, Jamie is back in the ballroom for 2020.

Jamie said: “Here we go again, hopefully this time I can last long enough so my mum can see me dance.

“The reason I’m doing it, is to make my mum proud but all I did last year was make her even more disappointed. Let’s change that this year, can’t wait!!”

Meanwhile Maisie Smith is an actress and singer, best known for playing the role of Tiffany Butcher-Baker on BBC’s EastEnders.

Maisie said: “Get me in those sequins, I can’t wait to dive into the Strictly fancy dress box this winter! This is a dream come true.”
