See new Strictly Come Dancing contestant Ainsley Harriott strut his stuff in the kitchen

The former Ready Steady Cook presenter has clearly been practising his moves...

TV chef Ainsley Harriott is the second celebrity set to grace the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom – and it looks as though he’s already got a few smooth moves up his sleeve.


The former Ready Steady Cook presenter admitted he liked to strut his stuff in the kitchen this evening, when he was revealed as a 2015 contestant on The One Show.

“I do like the idea, especially when I’m gliding around the kitchen,” he said.

And now we know what he’s talking about. If he can dance like this – while squeezing lemons – we reckon the rest of this year’s contestants will already be shaking in their rhinestone-studded boots…
