Hairy Biker Dave Myers and Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington are set to join this year's Strictly Come Dancing line up.

TV chef Dave is set to scoop £25,000 after signing up for the BBC One dance show, The Sun newspaper reports this morning.

According to friends of the 55-year-old, Dave hopes to use the show to help him continue to lose weight and ger fit.

“Dave’s transformed himself. He’s a lot lighter on his feet and has much more confidence," a source told the newspaper.

The tabloid claims that Olympic champion and London 2012 bronze medalist Rebecca Adlington is also in line for the series, following in the steps of Victoria Pendleton last year.


Strictly Come Dancing returns for its 11th series next month on BBC One.

Some of the other stars already rumoured to be on the show include former X factor winner Joe McElderry and TOWIE’s Mark Wright, as well as footballer Michael Owen and Cheryl Cole.

Meanwhile both Big Brother host Davina McCall and Mark’s fellow former TOWIE cast member Lauren Pope have said they’d be up for competing.
