Simon Rimmer is the seventh celebrity confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing 2017.
The news was announced during Channel 4’s Sunday Brunch.
“I think I’ll be more ballroom than Latin,” Simon said as the news was announced live on the show. “If you don’t win, you’re going to lose your place on the show,” said co-host Tim Lovejoy, who also presented him with a tin of fake tan.
We do, however, know who’ll be hosting: presenting duo Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will return alongside judges Darcey Bussell, Craig Revel-Horwood and Bruno Tonioli. And, of course, there’ll be no Len Goodman this year, with the retiring judge being replaced by Shirley Ballas.
Ballas won’t be the only new face on the show – Nadiya Bychkova, Dianne Buswell and Amy Dowden are joining the line-up of professional dancers after Joanne Clifton and Oksana Platero left the series.
Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC1 this autumn
