And the latest celebrity confirmed for the new season of Strictly Come Dancing is… Brian Conley. The news was announced earlier today (Friday 18 August) on Radio 2’s Steve Wright In The Afternoon.
“I’m delighted and honoured to be asked to strut my stuff on this year’s Strictly. My family all love the show and can’t wait to see me do my Dad dancing on national television”, Brian said. “I know it’s going to be a lot of hard work but I’m up for the challenge, so bring on the spray tan and sequins.”
The comedian, actor and television presenter is the tenth celebrity to sign up for the fifteenth season of Strictly. As TVWise previously reported, other celebrities set to compete include: Susan Calman, Aston Merrygold, Simon Rimmer, Joe McFadden, Reverend Richard Coles, Gemma Atkinson, Ruth Langsford, Davood Ghadami and Mollie King. The BBC Studios produced series returns to BBC One this autumn.
