Strictly Come Dancing is back
The start of this years Strictly Come Dancing is only 24 hours away! The annual celebrity dance show starts again tomorrow night on BBC1.

The full line-up has finally been announced and although we don't know the pairings yet, it's looking set to be as good as ever!

The biggest name in the new series is pop sensation and Mysterious Girl singer Peter Andre. And he's joined by 13 other household names. Here is the full lineup:

Ainsley Harriot - TV Chef
Georgia May Foote - Former Coronation Street Actress
Anthony Agogo - Team GB Olympic Bronze Medallist
Jamelia - Singer
Daniel O'Donnell - Singer
Jeremy Vine - BBC Presenter
Kellie Bright - Eastenders Actress
Katie Derham - Former ITV News Reader
Peter Andre - Singer
Anita Rani - Countryfile Presenter
Helen George - Call The Midwife Actress
Kirsty Gallacher - Sky Sports News Presenter
Iwan Thomas - Former Athlete & TV Presenter
Jay McGuiness - Singer (The Wanted)

With the final line-up now revealed, all we're waiting to find out is who each of the celebrities will be paired with. However that's being kept a surprise until tomorrow nights launch show.

Even so, the bookies are already tipping Peter Andre (7/2) and Jay McGuiness (5/1) to be the ones to beat! They're not looking so favourable about Jeremy Vine's chances however, with him priced at a whopping 66/1.

We're now into Series 13 of the popular dance show and it's hoping for it's biggest audience to date. The competition will follow the same format as the previous years and will focus on a variety of styles of Ballroom Dance, which include the Jive, Quickstep, Foxtrot, Tango, Samba and the Waltz.
