Thats him Vonee!
Although his singing isn't my cup of tea at all, I'm looking forward to Zoe interviewing him on ITT, he can be quite funny.

Seems a good, varied line-up so far.....anticipation is mounting! Wonder who the sports person/people will be.

Hi jingle, thanks, thought it was him. Not a fan, but have seen him interviewed. Lots of Irish charm...

The last 2 are going to be announced on The One Show tonight at 7pm.

Apparently Joanne Clifton isn't having a partner for the main series this year. See the ITT slot for update

I don't know a lot of the line up but they seem a good mix. I'm looking forward to the new series. What about you?

No doubt I'll find something/someone to moan about when it starts. Jeremy Vine is hovering in sight of the cross-hairs already..... pirat

Well I've already picked my two faves, just waiting for the launch show now.....

And then I'll find out if my choices have got two left feet (well, obviously, between them they have!).

No Andrew Ridgeley in the end Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad

But I'll get over it!

My initial reaction is it's not a stellar line-up but a few I don't mind....Helen, Kellie, Jay, Anita, Iwan.

Others may win me over as the series progresses. We'll see.

I'm warning you now though, I'm firmly anti the Andre!

Ha ha! Me too Sid Very Happy Though I'm sort of looking forward to him competing with Daniel for the 'Mr Nice-Guy' title.

Well, I think it's a pretty good line-up. I'd heard of all the men, but only two of the women (Carol and Jamelia). Carol, I love her on breakfast TV and I think she'll be one of my favourites. Jamelia was a bit of a PITA on the Bear Gryllis survival show.....though I expect she'll be better at dancing than camping.

From that list my firm favourite is Carol Kirkwood. I also hope Kirsty Gallagher, Iwan Thomas,Ainsley Harriott and Jeremy Vine do well. I am sure once the series gets under way lesser known celebs (to me) will grow on me and I'll not have my time for singers who tend to have a head start as they have an advantage of knowledge of musicality plus rhythm - key in dancing and some will have danced before.

That made me laugh. I don't mind who's who, no expectations at this point, although some will have a different starting position to others.

Just by chance, I was in a shop looking at some secondhand books with my old mum  today. I picked up a book with a picture of Daniel O'Donnell on the cover and showed it her:

"Is he still alive?"

"I hope so, he's doing Strictly"

"He's on strychnine?"

"Strictly"

"How long's he been on strychnine?"

Made me smile.

Looking forward to The Vine, Ainsley, Ewan, and The Midwife, and Kirsty. I did groan when I heard Peter Andre on due to the ongoing spit for spat who can hog publicity air time between him and the ex KP! Interesting to see Jamelia and Carol in the line up. Mr singing Jumper surely have the Grandma vote (similar to the followers of Mrs Doyle in Father Ted)

My main thoughts are

No Rugby player!
Another boy band member
Another soap star not heard of!
Please, please let the professional dancers choose their music

Plus Hellooooooo everyone bounce
