Mark Wright

We all knew it but now it's official: Mark Wright has signed up to Strictly Come Dancing 2014.

The TOWIE star has been rumoured time and time again for the BBC One series over the summer and this evening he finally confirmed them.

Speaking on his Heart Radio Show, Mark announced that he would be taking part in the new series, which is set to launch next month on BBC One.

Mark said: "Doing Strictly is going to be so completely different from anything I've done before.

"I'm the sort of guy who loves to bust out some moves at a party but I'm certainly not a natural dancer.

"Any of my friends would tell you that - they call me 'Markey no-moves'!"

He added: "I'm genuinely petrified about dancing on national telly but Strictly is such an amazing show to be a part of and I can't wait to get stuck in and give it my all!”

Mark is the third male name to be confirmed for this year's line-up and will be joining rugby hunk Thom Evans and Blue's Simon Webbe.

Also confirmed are This Morning TV host Alison Hammond, tennis ace Judy Murray and Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays'.

They'll all be competing against nine other celebrities for the coveted glitter ball trophy later this year.

Names rumoured to be joining them include Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack, Eastender and general telly hard man Ross Kemp singer Pixie Lott and hard man Ross Kemp, as well as Masterchef's Greg Wallace.
