Gemma confirmed the news on the BBC Strictly Instagram page, saying: "Finally, I don't have to lie anymore- I'm doing Strictly Come Dancing 2017! There's more bling in my vestry than in their dressing room". "They said, "Do you fancy it?' I said 'Not half".

The Rev Coles, who was born in Northamptonshire and is the vicar of St Mary's Church in Finedon where he lives with his partner David, will be hitting the dancefloor alongside the other already confirmed celebrities - actress Gemma Atkinson, This Morning presenter Ruth Langsford, EastEnders star Davood Ghadami and The Saturdays singer Mollie King.

Gemma Atkinson has been confirmed as the next celebrity to sign up to the 15th series of Strictly Come Dancing.

We can't wait to see him put on his dancing shoes!

Even Ruth Langsford will be very entertaining on the dance floor.

The announcement was made live on This Morning.

Strictly Come Dancing will return later this year.

And Gemma and Davood will be swapping scripts for dance lessons in no time.

"Without doubt it will be the scariest yet most exciting thing I've ever done".

'It will be a welcome change worrying about my next hot move instead of my next hot flush!'

The forthcoming series will see legendary choreographer Shirley Ballas claim Len Goodman's Head Judge seat following his shock departure at the end of previous year and, although the fellow panelists - Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel Horwood and Bruno Tonioli - are excited to have her on board, they're convinced she'll stand her ground.

BBC presenter Ore Oduba took the crown on last year's series after beating Louise Redknapp and Danny Mac.
