The eleventh celebrity joining this year’s Strictly Come Dancing is comedian Seann Walsh.

The news was announced during last night’s edition of The One Show on BBC One.

Seann said, “Having seen videos of me dancing on friends’ phones from the night before, it’s safe to say I’m petrified but also so excited. I’m really looking forward to the lifts, the Lycra and the laughs, although as Craig would probably say ‘dancing is no laughing matter dahhhhling…’”

Considered to be one of the best live comedians on the UK circuit, Walsh recently made his US TV debut on late night chat show, Conan. He is known for his role in Jack Dee’s ITV sitcom Bad Move.
