Driving Home For Christmas Chris Rea
As another series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' rolls around, Heart presenter Mark Wright leads a host of stars such as Gregg Wallace and Pixie Lott who will all take to the dance floor in hopes of winning the coveted ballroom title. Check out our guide to this year's contestants!
Mark Wright gets ready for the dance off! The Heart's presenter is gearing up to take on the other contestants.
Heart's Mark Wright clearly thinks he's in with a chance on Strictly and gives the thumbs up to photographers on press night.
Pixie Lott looks all smiles and a little sure of herself...but she sure has the moves!
The Saturdays' Frankie looks as sweet as pie, but will her competitive side come out on the dance floor?
Heart presenter Mark will take to the floor this series in hopes of winning the title but says he is "petrified" at the thought of dancing on live TV due to his lack of rhythm. The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star revealed on his Club Classics radio show: "I'm the sort of guy who loves to bust moves at a party but I'm certainly not a natural dancer. Any of my friends would tell you that - they call me 'Markey no-moves!" We think he has what it takes! Picture: BBC
Popstar Pixie Lott is already a hot contender for the ballroom crown as she is regularly seen shaking what her mama gave her on stage. After landing a string of top ten hits like 'Mama Do' and 'Boys and Girls' the singer seems set on learning a new skill. She said: "I always want to push myself as a performer so can't wait to learn the routines."
As one fifth of the pop group The Saturdays, Frankie Sandford will certainly know her way around the dance floor. The yummy mummy, who has a son Parker with her footballer husband Wayne Bridge, describes herself as "sunshine and showers" so expect lots of laughs and tears with this one! Picture: BBC
After Andy Murray’s victory at the 2013 Wimbledon games, it’s safe to say his mother Judy knows what it takes to raise a champion. Maybe Andy’s winning streak will rub off on her too? Picture: BBC
DJ Scott Mills may have the moves behind the decks but will he have the moves on the dance floor? We're not sure whether this bubbly star will take the crown but he will bring lots of entertainment. Picture: BBC

If you’re not used to watching Alison Hammond on daytime TV, then you may remember her starring in 'Big Brother' in 2003. The reality star turned presenter is known for her larger than life personality and should be an entertaining contestant. Picture: BBC
You may recognise this actor for his portrayal of 'EastEnders' love rat Max Branning, and whilst he may be a smooth mover with the ladies in the long-running soap he's got everyone wondering whether he will have the dance moves to match! Picture: BBC
'Bargain Hunt' presenter Tim Wonnacott knows good value when he sees it and now he hopes to become the show's most valued contestant when he takes on the waltz, the tango and the salsa this year! Picture: BBC
Simon Webb looks set to trade in Blue for gold as he gets ready to compete for the dancing trophy. Singing his way to fame in 2001, Simon has a number of hit records under his belt but now he’s set his sights on improving his cringe-worthy “daddy dancing”. Picture: BBC
As a food expert Gregg Wallace is used to doing the judging on 'Masterchef', but now the tables have turned and he will be the one trying to impress the panel! Let's just hope this chef can handle the heat! Picture: BBC
Scottish rugby player Thom Evans (and Kelly Brook's ex) has been focusing his efforts on his modelling and acting career after an injury saw him retire from the sport in 2010. After modelling in a few steamy underwear campaigns, it's no surprise the hunk is keen to sport revealing outfits on the show. He said: "I'm really looking forward to my Strictly makeover - bring on Strictly and bring on the spandex!" Picture: BBC
We don't know who's going to save the life of those in need when actress, Sunetra Sarker takes time out from her role as Dr Zoe Hanna in hospital series 'Casualty', but she is happy to escape the pressure of the A&E department. She said: "I don’t quite know what I've let myself in for, I'm in total denial! But the chance to swap my stethoscope for sequins was just too tempting." Picture: BBC
Taking part in this year's Strictly is a childhood dream come true for 'Mrs Brown's Boys' actress Jenny Gibney, who revealed she wanted to be a dancer when growing up. She explained: "As a child I wrote to Blue Peter asking could I dance with Pan's People. Now at last I get a chance to earn my badge - excited doesn't cover it!" Picture: BBC
Presenter Steve Backshall has travelled to over 100 countries and encountered the most dangerous animals, but we bet nothing could prepare him for the beast that is judge, Craig Revel Horwood! His comments sting more than any rattle snake! Picture: BBC
