Strictly Come Dancing 2013: Official line-up announced
The official line-up for Strictly Come Dancing 2013 has been announced, including Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Hairy Biker Dave Myers, Dragon Deborah Meaden and Vanessa Feltz.
Julien Macdonald will join the 14 other contestants, making him the first fashion designer to hit the dance floor in what is likely to be many a sequined costume.
Hot on the heels of gymnast Louis Smith’s performance last year, ruby world cup champion Ben Cohen and golfing legend Tony Jacklin will aim to bring their sporting prowess to the show.
Dave Myers might not be an obvious choice to grace the dance floor, but the Hairy Biker has promised to give it his all. “I am going to wear as much fake tan and glitter as possible,” he said.
