Will Young has become the second celebrity CONFIRMED for the Strictly Come Dancing 2016 line up.

The BBC confirmed Will for the show this afternoon in a post on social media.

Will said: "As a fan of Strictly for years, I have always imagined myself on the show, but the timing has not been right... until now!

"Music is my passion and the dancing I have done has always been with a microphone in hand. Now there will be no microphone or band, just me, my partner and the dance floor."

He added: "Strictly is a show with fantastic live music and has an ethos of positivity and growth.

"I practice these two things every day, and I will try my hardest to be the best dancer possible."

Yesterday morning saw the very first celebrity CONFIRMED by the BBC for the new series, with former MP Ed Balls joining this year's cast.

Rumoured celebs joining Ed and Will on the Strictly line up this year are ITV's Judge Rinder, singer Anastacia, Corrie's Ryan Thomas, model Daisy Lowe, Eternal's Louise Redknapp, former I'm A Celebrity host Laura Whitmore and butler to the late Princess Diana, Paul Burrell.

More names will be confirmed over the next few days.

Strictly Come Dancing starts in September on BBC One.
