I TALK TO The 2018 Strictly Celebs

As this year's celebs prepare to take to the dancefloor for the very first time, I caught up with them to find out how they were feeling.

Fewer shows on television are bigger than Strictly Come Dancing, with last year's series averaging over 11m per episode, making it the most-watched series yet and the second highest rating show on television in 2017, beaten only by Blue Planet II.

Hoping to follow in the footsteps of last year's winner Joe McFadden are pop stars Lee Ryan, Faye Tozer and Ashley Roberts, presenters Vick Hope, Kate Silverton and Susannah Constantine, documentary-makers Stacey Dooley and Katie Piper, actors Charles Venn and Danny John Jules, comedian Seann Walsh, television doctor Dr Ranj, paratriathlete Lauren Steadman, cricketer Graeme Swann and YouTube vlogger Joe Sugg.
