John Whaite has been confirmed for the Strictly Come Dancing lineup and will be one half of the show's first ever male-male coupling.
The 33-year-old won the third series of The Great British Bake Off in 2012 and has since carved out a career as a TV chef and cookery author.
"I'm so grateful, excited, and nervous to be joining the Strictly 2021 family," said Whaite.
"I've been wearing sequins and jazzy attire since I was three years old and can't wait to hurl myself, full throttle, around the most glamorous dance floor on earth.
"What's more exciting for me, is that I'm going to be one half of the first all-male partnership, which is a great step forward in representation and inclusion.
"Whoever it is I'm paired with, I hope they are up for a challenge as I want our routines to include lots of spectacular lifts!"
