Famous for: The part he played in the London 2012 sporting summer, picking up a bronze medal to add to Team GB's haul.

Bio: Move over Lewis Smith, there's a new London 2012 star on the Strictly dancefloor and he's going for, errr, silver? It IS a silver glitter ball, after all…

For those of you who may have missed it (were you living under a rock?) 26-year-old Anthony Ogogo became a household name in the UK when he competed in the 2012 Olympic Games, winning a bronze medal after facing Brazilian Esquiva Falcão Florentino in the Middleweight semi-finals.

Ogogo has quite the Reality TV CV, having popped up on Big Brother: Celebrity Hijack in 2008 (finishing in fourth place) and also competing in the third heat of the ITV diving show Splash!, making it through to the semi-final the following week.


He had to pull out due to an injury, though, so here's hoping the same fate doesn't await him on the Strictly dance floor.

Robin Windsor, Alex Jones and Sir Bruce Forsyth will be at the Radio Times Festival this September.
