Yesterday the BBC announced the latest celebrities who will be competing for Alesha Dixon’s title as “Strictly Come Dancing” champion.

The list was very much a who’s who? As in who is that again?

The 16 ‘celebrities’ taking part in the ballroom dancing show are: ex-EastEnder Natalie Cassidy and current Eastenders star Ricky Groves, Footballer’s Wives stars Zoe Lucker and Laila Rouass, Ronnie Wood’s estranged wife Jo, Loose Women presenter Lynda Bellingham, cricketer Phil Tufnell, tennis player Martina Hengis, boxer Joe Calzaghe, BBC Breakfast presenter Chris Hollins, athlete Jade Johnson, former jockey Richard Dunwoody, Coronation Street star Craig Kelly, Crimewatch host Rav Wilding, The Bill actress Ali Bastian and Hollyoaks heart-throb Ricky Whittle.

I guess the whole point of the show is to reignite their careers to good luck to them.

In the promo picture for the show veteran TV host Bruce Forysth poses with co-presenter Tess Daly, who is wearing a dusky pink one-shouldered Alberta Ferretti Pre-Fall 2009 chiffon gown.

The mother of two looks stunning in the promo picture with flawless nude make-up, loose wavy hair and a gold cuff.

The popular BBC show returns to screens next month.
