Simon Webbe is to compete on the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing
The Blue singer and former Attitude
cover star is the second male celebrity to be confirmed for the new series, which will begin next month (September) on BBC One.
"I am so happy to be joining the team and I cannot wait to get started," said Webbe, who previously appeared on the show's 2011 Christmas Special.
"I’m hopeful that Strictly Come Dancing
will help me improve on my daddy dancing skills. I want to make my daughter proud and no doubt she will be teaching me a pirouette or two along the way," he added.
Webbe joins four other celebrities already confirmed for the new series: recent Attitude cover star Thom Evans
, The Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge
, Andy Murray’s mum Judy Murray
and This Morning's Alison Hammond
Ten further celebrities will be announced before the contest gets started next month - and according to a recent report, so-called "old duffers" have been banned. Read more here
