The new series of BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing is just a few weeks away and so far twelve celebrity stars have been confirmed!
Tess Daly returns alongside new host Claudia Winkleman, replacing Sir Bruce Forsyth who has called it a day after eleven series fronting the show.
Plus the familiar four judges will also be back giving their verdict before the public vote!
Check out the big names who will be hoping to waltz their way to this year’s trophy!
Famous for: Former Xtra Factor telly host and Harry Styles’ ex-girlfriend!
We think: Caroline will definitely have picked up some tips from the 1D boys over the years on how to throw some moves!
Famous for: Singer and model with loads of Number 1 hits!
We think: Pixie’s shown us she can dance in her music videos, can she do it in front of millions on live TV? We think so! Pixie’s our favourite for the dancing crown!
Famous for: CBBC wildlife expert, host of Deadly 60 series!
We think: He’s faced some of the most terrifying animals in the world but this is by far Steve’s biggest challenge yet!
Famous for: 1/5th of The Saturdays and now husband to former England defender Wayne Bridge!
We think: Before she was in The Sats, Frankie was part of S Club Juniors so she’s had loads of dancing practice that should help her in the competition!

We think: Scott said he was looking forward to the weekly fake tanning – we hope he focusses on the dancing too!
Famous for: Top tennis coach and Andy Murray’s mum!
We think: Judy’s a super-talented coach but she’ll have to become the pupil and learn from the dancing pros if she wants to win!
Famous for: Scottish international rugby pro!
We think: Rugby players aren’t known for being particularly light on their feet – maybe Thom will surprise us all?
Famous for: TV entertainment presenter, as seen on This Morning!
We think: Alison’s previously appeared on I’m a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! and Big Brother so will know how to take on the other stars!
Famous for: Playing Max Branning in EastEnders!
We think: Max might get a few funny looks in the Square if he brings back that glitterball trophy!
Famous for: Casualty, Doctor Who and Emmerdale actress!
We think: Sunetra Sarker should show us some seriously sassy shapes on the Strictly show! (Do you like our alliteration?)
Famous for: Member of 00’s hitmakers Blue!
We think: Simon will be feeling a bit ‘Blue’ if he goes out in the first week!
Famous for: The Only Way Is Essex star, telly host and radio presenter
