Strictly spoilers! Melvin Odoom spills all on the Christmas special!


Melvin Odoom has given details away about this year's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Christmas special.

The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas line up was confirmed at the start of the week with six former contestants on the line up.

They are Olympian and presenter, Denise Lewis, Pop star, Frankie Bridge, Writer and actress, Pamela Stephenson, Celebrity chef, Ainsley Harriott, TV presenter, Gethin Jones and Radio and TV host, Melvin Odoom.

Melvin of course appeared on this year's show but was eliminated in the first week.

And on tonight's Celebrity Juice, Melvin gets quite a ribbing for it.

"Ed Balls is a better dancer than you?" asks host Keith Lemon.

Melvin says: "Ed tries and everyone loves his journey and I love Ed, he works really hard every single week.

"And he gets better, it’s not just about how greater dancer you are it’s about your journey on the show."

But Melvin has higher hopes for the Xmas special on Christmas day, saying: "No one can get eliminated it’s just one show, there’s only one winner."

However as for his chances of winning, Melvin quipped: "I don’t think that’s going to happen!"

Melvin then went on to let slip he would be performing with Janette Manrara again.

"I'm dancing with Janette again…oh no I’m not supposed to say!"

Well now we all know...

The full line up of pro dancers will be confirmed in due course, with the festive special airing on Christmas Day on BBC One.

You can catch Melvin on Celebrity Juice, Tonight, 10pm on ITV2
