With rumours flying left, right and centre these last few days, fans of Strictly Come Dancing have been ferociously searching the papers and trends on Twitter for clues as to who the fourteen celebrities are for Series 10 of the hit BBC Show.


And, with a thorough search I can now confirm the (official)* line-up for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing (in alphabetical order): 

Colin Salmon

Dani Harmer

Wow, it certainly looks set to be a stellar line-up for the BBC, and enough to make Simon Cowell choke on his sour lemons. In fact, I think it’s probably the best line-up EVER for a series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Not sure who my favourite’s are so far, but I reckon Richard and Lisa will provide the laughs; Johnny or Fern will leave early and that the women are by far the strongest. Louis, Victoria, Kimberley and Nicky all stand good chances of winning, but Denise, Dani and Michael might be the dark horses of the competition. Who knows what will happen!?

All we know is this series promises to be bigger and better, with skimpier costumes, a new judge and dancer and a return to Wembley. Rumour has it that this will be Brucie’s last too, so we should all watch!

So roll on the *(OFFICIAL) line-up reveal on Monday (on The One Show at 7pm) and next week’s show, where we’ll find out which professional will be dancing with which celebrity. Ooo it’s exciting!!!
