After being announced, he said: “It truly is a pleasure to be a contestant on Strictly Come Dancing, to be associated with a show that has such a huge following excites and scares me in equal measure!
“Dancing on Strictly is going to be quite a challenge but life’s all about testing yourself so there’s lots to look forward to, let the games begin.”
The actor, who has made cameo appearances on Miranda, sketch show Little Miss Jocelyn and movie The Dark Knight, was revealed during Tuesday’s Good Morning Britain alongside What Not to Wear presenter Susannah Constantine.
Although there hasn’t been an official announcement from the BBC, Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli, Darcey Bussell and last year’s new Head Judge Shirley Ballas all look set to reprise their seats on the panel this year.
