Former rugby hunk Thom Evans is the first male celebrity to be confirmed for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.
Thom made the announcement via the official Strictly Come Dancing Vine account this morning which saw him selecting a glitter ball over a rugby ball.
Talking about joining the show he said, “I’m so happy to be doing the show, I cannot wait to get started. I’m really looking forward to my Strictly makeover – bring on Strictly and bring on the spandex!”
Ex-professional rugby player Thom represented Scotland at International level winning ten caps and has had club stints at both London Wasps and Glasgow Warriors, where he held the record for most tries scored.
29 year old Thom has been focussing on modelling and acting since he retired from rugby.
