More Strictly Come Dancing Contestants Announced
Strictly Come Dancing is approaching once again.
As a result, the various stars who will be participating are starting to be announced one by one.
A few days ago The Saturdays star Mollie King was revealed as the very first contestant on the show. The singer is excited to take part in the show saying:
“I'm a huge fan of Strictly Come Dancing so I can't actually believe I'm lucky enough to be taking part in it this year!
"I'm literally so excited to learn Latin and ballroom dancing, and of course I can’t wait to get into the sequins too!
"It’s going to be a lot of hard work but I'm ready for the challenge!”
Also previously announced is EastEnders actor Davood Ghadami who plays the role of market trader Kush Kazmemi. Speaking about taking part in the reality show, Ghadami said:
"Having the opportunity to take part in this year's Strictly is such an honour. It's going to be exciting, challenging and terrifying all at once and I am so looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone and learning to dance. See you under the Glitterball!".
Today another couple of familiar faces were confirmed for the show.
This Morning host Ruth Langsford will be taking to the dancefloor in the upcoming series. Ruth is most known for co-hosting the ITV show with her husband Eamonn Holmes.
Speaking about the challenge, Langsford said: "I have dreamt about doing Strictly for so long, I can't quite believe my dream has come true!"
"The sum of my dance experience is throwing a few shapes at a party. I've never had a dance lesson in my life.
"Without doubt it will be the scariest yet most exciting thing I've ever done. It'll be a welcome change worrying about my next hot move instead of my next hot flush!"
Also added to the bill is Emmerdale star Gemma Atkinson, who played Carly Hope on the soap.
After the announcement this morning on BBC Breakfast, Atkinson said, "I felt so snide lying to all my family. I can finally say 'I'm doing it', I'm sorry for lying."
"I'm beyond excited and incredibly nervous but I am looking forward to learning a new skill in ballroom and Latin dancing and taking on this new challenge."
The official return date for Strictly Come Dancing has yet to be confirmed but it is thought that September 22nd could be the start date for the latest series.
