Ronan, 41, is set to dance with Gordana Grandosek, who is married to former Strictly professional Trent Whiddon. Keith Duffy has been partnered up with Russian beauty Nadiya Bychkova, while Shane Lynch is set to take the dance floor with Luba Mushtuk. Meanwhile, all eyes will be on Katya who recently made headlines after she was pictured kissing Seann after a drunken night out. This resulted in the comedian being dumped by his girlfriend, Rebecca Humphries, while Katya's husband Neil has stood by his wife.

Katya, 29, recently revealed her hopes to start a family with Neil in the near future. She told The Mail on Sunday that she would like to take time off from the show to have a baby, saying: "I would love to have a baby in the near future, definitely. In a perfect world, Neil will hopefully get a partner on Strictly and he can stay on the show. Then I can go off and have our baby, and come back again afterwards. It's very hard if you think about it."
