Who's on Strictly Come Dancing 2017? Meet cast of celebrity contestants

Here's a look at the Strictly Come Dancing 2017 celebrities cast as they glam up for the new series.

The full line up of fifteen all star celebrity contestants have been confirmed over the past month.

They include The Saturdays' singer Mollie King, EastEnders actor Davood Ghadami and host of ITV's This Morning and regular Loose Women panellist Ruth Langsford.

Reverend Richard Coles and soap actress Gemma Atkinson join them on the confirmed cast of Strictly this year.

Also on the official line up for 2017 are TV chef and presenter Simon Rimmer, Holby City actor Joe McFadden, BBC Radio 4 comic Susan Calman and JLS singer Aston Merrygold.

More celebs are comic Brian Conley, Good Morning Britain presenter Charlotte Hawkins and Holby City actress Chizzy Akudolu.

Rounding off the starting line up are X Factor winner turned West End star Alexandra Burke, Paralympian Jonnie Peacock, and Debbie McGee, TV personality, presenter and the widow of magician Paul Daniels.


Strictly Come Dancing starts tonight as the 15 celebrity contestants will discover which professional dancer they will be paired with as their journey towards the famous Glitterball Trophy begins.

Once the pairings have been announced the celebrities and professionals will join together and take to the dancefloor for the very first time for an eye-catching group performance as Strictly 2017 blasts off in style.

Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will host the series, which will also pay tribute to the late Sir Bruce Forsyth.

Strictly Come Dancing starts this evening, September 9 on BBC One at 7PM.

The celebs and their newly revealed pro partners will then hit the rehearsal rooms for two weeks of intense training.

The Strictly Come Dancing 2017 live shows will then begin later this month on Saturday, September 23.
