Former Hollyoaks star Danny Mac has been CONFIRMED for Strictly Come Dancing's new series.

It's shaping up to be a great series, no? Danny's place on the show was confirmed earlier today via BBC, making him the seventh celebrity to join the lineup.

Danny is best known for playing Mark 'Dodger' Savage on Hollyoaks. He announced his exit from the soap last year.

Speaking ahead of his Strictly debut, Danny has said he isn't so keen on strutting his stuff in front of the judging panel. In fact, he's pretty much terrified.

He said: "I am terrified of them all! I get judged every day of my life as an actor so I am used to it, but I hate not being able to do something and they are going to be the ones to tell me – in front of millions! I do like a bit of tough love though so I will take it and deal with it… I hope."

Having trained at theatre school when he was growing up, Danny admits it won't be the first time he has had to don some questionable dance gear, however, he does admit it has been a long time since he's had to do so since.

"I first danced at college when I was 18. That was the first time I'd ever worn a pair of tights or a dance belt! I worked hard at it but it's safe to say when I graduated all my dance gear went in a bag in the loft and hasn't been seen since!" He joked.

Addressing his addition to the lineup on Twitter, Danny tweeted two emojis - one of a dancer and one of a slightly nervous face.

He will join a slew of other famous faces on the dance floor, including Louise Redknapp who was confirmed only yesterday (15 August). She told fans she is "so excited" to be doing Strictly.

Other confirmed celebrities include Will Young, Laura Whitmore and former Xtra Factor host Melvin Odoom.
