"Strictly Come Dancing is an incredible show," said Peter. "I've always loved watching it on TV and to be honest I'm flattered to have been asked to take part before, but due to certain work commitments was unable to.

"I now feel the time is right to give it a go - everything has just clicked into place to do it this year. Wish me luck please…argh!!"

Peter rose to fame during the 1990s with successful 'Mysterious Girl' and 'Flava'. The former I'm a Celebrity…Get Me Out of Here! contestant, who married Emily MacDonagh in July, revealed the second part of their honeymoon has been put on hold due to his busy schedule this year.

More celebrity contestants for the new series of Strictly will be announced in due course.

Peter joins Jeremy Vine, Ainsley Harriott, Kellie Bright, Georgia May Foote, Katie Derham and Carol Kirkwood, who have already been announced as celebrity contestants.
