Strictly Come Dancing is finally back on our TV screens with a sparkly new series.
And one of the contestants ready to take to the ballroom floor is actress Caroline Quentin who has been partnered up with professional Johannes Radebe.
The star recently admitted she’s been receiving tips from former finalist Debbie McGee, who told her to try running.
Speaking to Radio Times, Caroline said: “I spoke to her the other day and she said, ‘Do some cardio. You’ll never know days like it.’
“So, I’m doing the ‘Couch to 5K’ running programme. But obviously I can’t keep up with Johannes because he’s a machine.”
But what has Caroline Quentin been in? Here’s what we know about her career…
Caroline was educated at the independent Arts Educational School where she started her stage career by appearing locally in the Pendley Open Air Shakespeare Festival.
In 1992 she then bagged the role of Dorothy in Men Behaving Badly, and appeared in 42 episodes until 1998.
In July 1996, Quentin released a single, a cover of the Exciters' Tell Him’, with Men Behaving Badly co-star Leslie Ash under the name ‘Quentin and Ash’.
