Mollie King, Debbie McGee and Aston Merrygold join Strictly Come Dancing

Debbie McGee is best known for being the assistant to her late husband magician Paul Daniels, who also appeared on the show. I knew it was game over for me. That was then, this is now and this is my chance to have even more sequins!'

In 2014, she made her West End debut playing Rachel Marron in the stage musical adaption of The Bodyguard and received a nomination for Best West End Newcomer at the West End Frame Awards.

It has been speculated that the infamous "Strictly curse" was the reason why big names did not want to take part this series, after several high profile relationships have ended after a stint of Strictly.

Charlotte Hawkins is the fourth member of the Good Morning Britain team to try her luck on Strictly Come Dancing.

Earlier this month it was announced that Chizzy's former co-star Joe, who plays Raffaello "Raf" di Lucca, would be practising his dancing skills for the competition.

Charlotte said, "I am so thrilled to be one of the contestants on Strictly this year!"

The actor, 41, previously showed his dancing skills off in 2015 alongside co-star Eleanor Fanyinka in a short sequence titled Holby City Does The Strictly.

Strictly Come Dancing have confirmed who their 11th and 12th celebrities are as the final lineup is confirmed today.

After teasing viewers at the start of the show Charlotte announced the big news. "It's been great to be able to tell everyone".

The 15th series of Strictly also features The Saturdays singer Mollie King, JLS heartthrob Aston Merrygold and former glamour model Gemma Atkinson.

The final four contestants will be revealed later today.

All three of them were very excited to be participating.

The forthcoming series will see legendary choreographer Shirley Ballas claim Len Goodman's Head Judge seat following his shock departure at the end of previous year and, although the fellow panelists - Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli - are excited to have her on board, they're convinced she'll stand her ground.
