The Strictly Come Dancing 2015 contestants are set to begin rehearsals today.

So far a total of twelve celebs have been confirmed for this year's line up with singer and TV presenter Jamelia becoming the latest name announced yesterday.

She joins Countryfile's Anita Rani, The Wanted singer Jay McGuiness, boxer Anthony Ogogo, Irish singer Daniel O'Donnell, singer Peter Andre, Weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, TV host Katie Derham, Corrie star Georgia May Foote, EastEnder Kellie Bright, TV chef Ainsley Harriet and broadcaster Jeremy Vine on the current line up

With just a handful of spots now left the fill we're almost got our complete Strictly cast for 2015 and today will see the celebs kick off training.

As yet they've still not partnered up but will instead be rehearsing in groups ahead of the launch show which films next week.

Pro dancer Brendan Cole tweeted on Wednesday: "Last day of pro rehearsals then tomorrow big day with new celebs. Good Lineup (with a few characters)! Hope you are all suitably petrified!"

The launch programme will see group performances from the pros before they are paired up with this year's celebs and take to the dancefloor together for the first time.

Those tipped to join the current confirmed line up on the line up this year include former X Factor champ Joe McElderry, fashion stylist Gok Wan, Call The Wife's Helen George, EastEnder Shane Ritchie and Sky Sports TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher, as well as married couple Jamie and Louise Redknapp and ex ITV presenter Adrian Chiles.

Strictly Come Dancing 2015 starts back on TV in September with the launch date now confirmed for September 5 on TV.
