Famous for: Playing Dr Zoe Hanna in Casualty 

Actress Sunetra Sarker is a familiar face in soap land, having starred in Doctors, Emmerdale and Holby City. 

She’s also had long-running roles in Brookside, where she played Nisha Batra between 1988-1990 and 2000-2003, and Casualty, where she currently stars as Dr Zoe Hanna. 

Sunetra is also no stranger to reality TV shows and entertainment formats either. She competed in 2007’s Celebrity MasterChef and has also appeared on Big Star’s Little Star and Pointless Celebrities.  

So far, none of her roles have really involved dancing – and from what we can see on her Twitter feed, the switch from comfortable scrubs to sparkly high heels is already taking its toll on her feet…
