Dr Ranj Singh is the latest celebrity to be announced to be joining Strictly Come Dancing.
The doctor – who appears on ITV’s This Morning and Watchdog on BBC1 – is the seventh contestant to be announced after former contestant Ruth Langsford revealed the news today (August 16).
Dr Ranj – who is openly gay – started his career five years ago on the CBeebies show Get Well Soon.
About joining the new series of the ballroom and latin dance competition, he said: “I’m so overwhelmed and excited to be part of this wonderful show.
“It’s an absolutely dream come true for me! I’ve been a massive fan for so long, and I can’t quite believe this is happening, but I’m going to give it my best shot.
“Anyone that knows me knows that I love a bit of sparkle… so bring on the glitter! I can’t wait.”
