Mark Wright's starting to get nervous about his upcoming stint on Strictly Come Dancing.

The former TOWIE star is one of the famous faces who will take to the dancefloor later this year when the glitzy competition returns to BBC One for its new series.

Tweeting this morning, he told fans: "Long day today but feeling fresh. Dreamt about @bbcstrictly last night! How am I going to do this?? #nervous #nomoves. I am so excited though!"


One follower was quick to reassure Mark that if anything, at least the show would be great practice for his first dance at his wedding to Michelle Keegan next year.

"Very true," replied Mark. "I'm gonna need it x."

We have a sneaky suspicion, though, that radio host Mark may turn out to be rather talented on the dancefloor!

Mark and Michelle will marry next year.

Chatting about Strictly on his Heart FM radio show last week, Mark said: "You know I can't dance and all that, and I've got absolutely no rhythm and they call me 'Marky no moves', well…the dancing shoes are coming out and I'm going to learn to dance as this year I am taking part in Strictly Come Dancing!"

"I love a challenge. I love to conquer a challenge that I'm not good at, and this is exactly that. I'm gonna put everything into it."

Strictly bosses have been revealing the celebrities for this year's show one at a time. So far, the lineup includes Mark, Radio DJ Scott Mills, Andy Murray's mum Judy, EastEnders's Jake Wood, The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge and This Morning reporter Alison Hammond.
