Peter Andre says he hopes to dance with Ola Jordan on Strictly Come Dancing 2015.

Peter was announced for this year's Strictly line up earlier this week, saying: "I’ve always loved watching it on TV and to be honest I’m flattered to have been asked to take part before, but due to certain work commitments was unable to. I now feel the time is right to give it a go - everything has just clicked into place to do it this year. Wish me luck please…argh!!”

Now confirmed for the Strictly cast of 2015, the singer says he hopes to get partnered up with pal Ola for the competition.

He said: "The only one I know is Ola Jordan because I've met her many times in the past and we always joked for years... 'I'll only do it if you're my partner', and she said, 'We'll only have you on if you're my partner'," he revealed.

"And the joke has sort of gone on and on, but there's every chance that Ola's not going to be my partner now, because they don't tell the partners or the people until the day before, because they have to match weight and height and things like that. So I have no idea."

Speaking to Free Radio, Peter went to reveal how he had been repeatedly asked to take part in Strictly but schedule clashes had prevented him in the past.

Peter and the rest of the confirmed Strictly Come Dancing 2015 celebs will first feature in the launch show next month on September 5.

There they will find out just who their pro partner is before taking to the dancefloor for a group performance.

The live shows will follow later on in the year on BBC One.
