June Brown

Eastenders star June Brown has become the latest celebrity to be confirmed as taking part in this year's Christmas Strictly Come Dancing special. The 83-year-old soap legend will become the oldest ever contestant on the show when she dances with professional partner Vincent Simone on next month's show.

June said: "I'm terrified and apprehensive about what I've let myself in for.

"I must be barmy and I'm not sure what's come over me. I just hope I can remember the steps to the routines. I'm looking forward to working with the professional dancers and the other contestants."

Meanwhile the full line up of couples has been revealed. As previously reported on TellyMix, Business Secretary Vince Cable will be dancing with Erin Boag and Torchwood actor John Barrowman will be partnered with Kristina Rihano.

Also in the line up are comedian Ronni Ancona who will compete with Anton du Beke and presenter Fern Britton who will join up with Matthew Cutler.
