The Strictly Come Dancing 2021 lineup is completed by former rugby player Ugo Monye.

Former Harlequins and England rugby star Ugo Monye has been named as the 15th and final celebrity in the lineup for this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The 38-year-old completes a cast which also features Team GB Olympian Adam Peaty, BBC Breakfast presenter Dan Walker, CBBC's Rhys Stephenson, Hollyoaks actress Katie McGlynn, comedian Robert Webb and The Crown actor Greg Wise.

Also taking part are TV host AJ Odudu, McFly singer Tom Fletcher, Loose Women's Judi Love, Dragons' Den investor Sara Davies, Gordon Ramsay's daughter Tilly Ramsay and comedian Nina Wadia.

John Waite - winner of The Great British Bake Off - will be part of the show's first male-male pairing, while EastEnders star Rose Ayling-Ellis will become Strictly's first deaf competitor.

On joining the lineup, Monye said: "What a dream come true! Strictly is the biggest entertainment show on TV and I can't wait to show everyone I've got more than just dad dancing moves.

"My two beautiful daughters never had a chance to see me on the rugby pitch, so to know they can watch me waltzing and twirling every week is really special to me. I love an outfit at the best of times, so bring on the sequins!"

The series begins next month on BBC One.
