Strictly Come Dancing 2012 celebrity lineup revealed? Colin Salmon, Denise Van Outen, Victoria Pendleton, Sid Owen, Johnny Ball, Jerry Hall, Nicky Byrne, Fern Britton
It was confirmed yesterday that Strictly Come Dancing will return to our screens and the question on thousands of fan’s lips today has been “who is on the lineup?”
With only a few days to go until the 2012 series of the BBC competition kicks off, the celebrities have already begun their period of training and have donned their dance shoes for the first time and the tabloids have been full of reports on whose signed up and who the producers want.
Judge Craig Revel Horwood told The Daily telegraph that he’d love to see recently shamed royal Prince Harry on the dancefloor. He admitted:
“I would love to see him on Strictly.”
“Maybe, if it were a charity event, we might be able to convince him. He gives it large and he’s just amazing.”
Somehow we think this is a bit of wishful thinking though and if Harry can’t even turn up to the opening of the Paralympic games, we can’t really see him on Strictly can you?
We have compiled a list of the celebrities who are confirmed to be on the lineup and those that could well be the big mystery star when the series starts next weekend. Click on the links in their names to find out more about the star and the report on their signing.
