Sports broadcaster Kirsty said: "I've always been a huge fan of Strictly, so am very excited to be taking part in the show this year. Sport and fitness have always been a big part of my life but dancing is an entirely new challenge for me! I can't wait to get started!"

Meanwhile, sprinter-turned-broadcaster Iwan said: "I'm extremely excited and scared at the thought of taking part in Strictly.
