“Russell is in advanced talks to appear. We can’t wait to get him on the dancefloor in his sequins," an insider said. “He’s a really loud, flamboyant character and is going to be great TV.
“He will lose weight in training before the show but he’s still going to be a big bloke and not the most nimble performer.
“It’s going to be hilarious, although whoever has to partner him might be in for a rough ride.”
