Strictly boss Lousie Rainbow said today: “We are thrilled with our pro-dancer line up this year. Not only are some of the viewers’ favourites returning, but we also have some exciting new dancers joining the Strictly family.

"I think it’s safe to say that this year’s Strictly will be as exciting and entertaining as always.”

The celebrity line up for this year's Strictly won't be revealed for many months yet, but early rumours have included Angie Best, Adrian Chiles, Karen Danczuk and even Katie Price and Dermot O'Leary

The show returns to BBC One in the autumn!
