The announcement comes soon after the BBC announced that Richie Campbell was the third celebrity to be confirmed for the line-up. 

The show will be a huge celebration this year, as it will have the largest group of pro dancers in Strictly history, with four new pros Vito Coppola, Carlos Gu, Lauren Oakley and Michelle Tsiakkas joining this year following Aljaz Skorjanec and Oti Mabuse's exit ahead of the 2022 series.

I’m absolutely ready to take on this journey and to shine," while Michelle added: "Being a professional dancer on Strictly Come Dancing has been my dream ever since I was a little girl. 

"I cannot believe my dream has come true! I’m so grateful to be joining this incredible family and I can’t wait to step on that magical dance floor and give it my all."
