Jennifer, the wife of Irish comedian Brendan O'Carroll, who plays his daughter Cathy in the Mrs Brown TV series, revealed that this is a childhood dream come true: "As a child I wrote to Blue Peter asking could I dance with Pan's People. Now at last I get a chance to earn my badge - excited doesn't cover it!!"

MasterChef presenter Gregg, meanwhile, said that he can't wait to live in the "Strictly bubble".

"I'm delighted to be joining Strictly Come Dancing," he told The One Show presenters.

"My wife and I are big fans of the show and this year we'll be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. She loves dancing but it's never really been my specialty. I would love to pick up even just a few moves so that come our anniversary, I can take her out and show her a good time!"
