HRVY – whose name is Harvey Leigh Cantwell – is a former CBBC presenter and is now a pop star with over one BILLION streams. We’ve seen his music video moves and think he’s got a fantastic chance of reaching the final!
Maisie has won awards for her acting skills in Eastenders as Tiffany Butcher-Baker, and has released two singles in recent years. While she’s no stranger to the television cameras, will she impress the Strictly judges? Only time will tell!
This reality TV star was a contestant in last year’s Strictly Come Dancing, but an injury meant that he had to leave the show early. Now match-fit, he’s ready for another attempt at getting his hands on the dancing crown!
NICOLA ADAMS OBE
This Olympic gold medallist boxer makes Strictly history by being part of the first-ever all-female pairing. She’s displayed her nimble footwork in the boxing ring and now it’s time to show of her agility on the dancefloor! We think she’s got a fighting chance of winning.
JJ – or John James – is a former Royal Marine Commando, Invictus Games medallist and can now be seen presenting shows on TV. He’s already a hero, but what will the judges think?
Clara is a Radio 1 presenter and is part of a BAFTA TV Awards presenting team. In the run-up to the show, she has revealed that she loves to dance and can’t wait to be taught by a professional. We reckon she’s going to do very well!
This comedian, musician and actor is looking forward to the challenge of learning dance routines every week. While his dancing prowess is something of an unknown quantity at this stage, we can guarantee that he’ll be fun to watch!
Former politician Jacqui once won a bronze medal for Scottish Highland Dancing 50 years ago. Will she be able to recreate that magic five decades later? We can only wait and see!
Ranvir is a journalist and TV presenter and you may have seen her appearances on ITV’s Good Morning Britain while you’re getting ready for school. She’s admitted that joining the show feels like being on a “rollercoaster” but, if her dancing is anything like her presenting skills, we reckon she’ll wow the judges with her fancy footwork
This singer and actor was the third celebrity to confirm his appearance on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. A former member of the group The Wanted, he told the BBC: “Not really one for the dance floor, but I take a lot of comfort in the fact that Jay McGuiness set The Wanted’s bar so low…” Whether he’ll reach the final is anyone’s guess, but he could surprise the viewers.
This former American football player has been part of Dallas Cowboys, Houston Texans and New York Giants and now presents the NFL Show on BBC. “Strictly was the first show I ever watched when I moved to the UK and I’m a massive fan,” says Jason. This star of the football field could become a star of the dance floor, too!
Caroline is an actress and was the first celebrity to be announced for this year’s show. She’s admitted that she’s “thrilled and terrified” to be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing, but we think she’ll be a firm favourite with the viewers.
