TV chef Ainsley will be taking to the dance floor for the brand new 13th series returning to BBC One in September.
The news was unveiled on The One Show on Tuesday evening (11 August) where Ainsley joined presenters Matt Baker and Alex Jones on the green sofa.
Ainsley, most famous for fronting the long-running BBC cookery show Ready, Steady, Cook, said: "I must admit that I do love to dance, but doing it in front of the nation is a whole different matter!
"In my day job the only type of Salsa I know about is the one in my recipes so I am looking forward to rising to the challenge, bring it on!"
Will Ainsley be a recipe for success?
