The celebrities taking part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing show have been revealed this evening, live on BBC One's The One Show. After months of speculation, the 14 stars were confirmed, with a mixed bag of sporting giants, telly presenters and former MPs taking part...

Head Strictly Come Dancing judge Len Goodman was in the studio to reveal the line up.

The first four celebs - codenamed Wasp, Twist, Queen and Star - were revealed to be Sven-Göran Eriksson‎'s ex Nancy Dell'Olio, former Eastender actress Anita Dobson, McFly star Harry Judd and astrologer Russell Grant.

Footie star Robbie Savage, actress Chelsee Healey, singer Holly Valance and comic Rory Bremner were the next celebrities to be revealed.


Boxer Audley Harrison, codenamed Glove, was next announced, alongside popstar Lulu, former MP Edwina Currie and Daybreak presenter Dan Lobb.

Aussie soap actor Jason Donovan was next to be revealed, leaving only The One Show Host's very own Alex Jones to complete the line up.

"I feel so nervous and so sick, we've only had two days of practice and my arms are aching, Len!" Alex said.

This year the celebs will face a mid-series twist as they perform in front of some 6,500 fans live at Wembley Arena.

The finale meanwhile will be filmed in 3D from Blackpool Tower's famous ballroom.
