"I absolutely love the show and I love dancing! I cannot wait to get engrossed and live in a Strictly bubble!" said Gregg.

Tim added: I'm delighted to be joining Strictly Come Dancing. My wife and I are big fans of the show and this year we'll be celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary. She loves dancing but it's never really been my speciality. I would love to pick up even just a few moves so that come our anniversary, I can take her out and show her a good time!"


Meanwhile, Jennifer said: ""As a child I wrote to Blue Peter asking could I dance with Pan's People. Now at last I get a chance to earn my badge - excited doesn't cover it!!"

MasterChef judge Gregg, Bargain Hunt's Tim and Mrs Brown's Boys actress Jennifer join a glittering group that includes former Xtra Factor presenter Caroline Flack, The Saturdays' Frankie Bridge and ex-TOWIE star Mark Wright.

Also competing are popstar Pixie Lott, EastEnders actor Jake Brown, BBC Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills, Blue singer Simon Webbe and This Morning reporter Alison Hammond.

Naturalist Steve Backshall, Casualty star Sunetra Sarker, Andy Murray's mum Judy and ex-rugby player Thom Evans.

This year's Strictly will be co-hosted by Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman following Sir Bruce Forsyth's decision to step down from the main shows.

Strictly launches Sunday, 7 September at 8pm on BBC One.
