The last two people confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing are…TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher and sprinter Iwan Thomas.

Kirsty and Iwan were announced as they appeared on The One Show with Kirsty saying she was a life long fan of the show.

She added: “Sport and fitness have always been a big part of my life but dancing is an entirely new challenge for me. I can't wait to get started, she said.

Iwan admitted he was “extremely excited and scared” about putting on his dancing shoes but, like Kirsty, he said he couldn’t wait to get into action.

“I love watching the show and I can't believe I'm swapping my running spikes for dancing shoes. I used to be quick at running around the track and I'm just hoping my dance partner doesn't leave me behind.”

The other celebs taking part in the show this year are: Jeremy Vine, Ainsley Harriott, Kellie Bright, Georgia May Foote, Katie Derham, Carol Kirkwood, Peter Andre, Daniel O'Donnell, Anthony Ogogo, Jay McGuiness , Anita Rani, Jamelia and Helen George.

We cannot wait! The show starts on BBC One on 5 September at 7:15pm.
