Radio 2 presenter Richie Anderson is unveiled as the third celebrity taking part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

Radio 2 breakfast presenter Richie Anderson has been revealed as the third celebrity taking part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The former footballer, who will be paired with a male dancer, joins a lineup that also includes actors Will Mellor and Kym Marsh.

Talking about his participation in the show, Anderson said: "This is a dream come true! I cannot wait to get in those sparkles and sequins and shimmy across the most famous dance floor in the world!

"Strictly is the ultimate feel good show, as soon as I hear that iconic theme tune it's just pure escapism.

"I'm going to have to cancel my legendary Strictly launch night kitchen party that I throw every year, I'm sure my friends and family will understand.

"It's also a massive honour to be part of an all-male dance partnership, it's so important we have that inclusion on such a huge show."

The new series begins on BBC One in September, with the remaining celebrities due to be revealed over the coming days.
