More individuals are being added to the reality show line up as it draws closer to airing.

The latest familiar face to be announced for the show is former X Factor contestant and JLS star Aston Merrygold.

Talking to BBC Radio 1 host Scott Mills, the singer says he is determined to win, "The aim is to win... you get to stay for the whole series and you get a trophy at the end."

"I just want the shortest dancer and I'm no the tallest bloke."

Merrygold joins a host of other names including The Saturdays' Mollie King, Emmerdale's Gemma Atkinson, This Morning's Ruth Langsford and Holby City's Joe McFadden.
