Judge Rinder - 13 Jan 2015


Judge Rinder - real name Robert Rinder - confirmed the news to Radio One's Scott Mills earlier today (22 August), telling listeners that his grandmother will be delighted when she hears!

"The only thing I knew would make my grandmother more proud than watching my TV courtroom was to see me dressed up in white tie doing the Foxtrot," he said.

"Although I suspect the latter will be far more difficult, I am doing Strictly Come Dancing for her." Aw!

This year's lineup is almost complete, with a final three celebrity dancers being announced this evening. Birds Of A Feather actress Lesley Joseph has already hinted she could be one of those named!

The lineup so far is: Politician Ed Balls, singer Will Young, I'm A Celebrity...Get Me Out Of Here Now's Laura Whitmore, BBC Breakfast's Naga Munchetty, BBC sports presenter Ore Oduba, TV and radio host Melvin Odoom, singer Louise Redknapp, teen gymnast Claudia Fragapane, Hollyoaks' Danny Mac, model Daisy Lowe and pop star Anastacia and Judge Rinder.
