We already have our first ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ contestant in the form of Ed Balls, but hosts Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman have teased what’s in store from the rest of the line-up. 

This year’s crop of contestants looks set to be one of the best ever, and apparently one name is so good that it made Claud scream out loud when she found out. 

Speaking in a video posted on the official ‘Strictly’ Twitter account, Claudia said: “There’s something for everyone: there’s young, there’s old, there’s small, there’s tall, there’s cuddly, there’s abrasive.

“Actually there’s no abrasive ones, I miss the abrasive ones.”

Tess added, “There’s cute, there’s gorgeous,” while Claudia promised: “There’s hot, there’s edible.”

“There is one name that made me scream,” she added. 

Claudia Winkleman and Tess Daly are VERY excited about the 'Strictly' line-up

Former MP Ed was the first celebrity to confirm they were taking part in this year’s series of ‘Strictly’ on Monday (8 August), with the rest of the line-up expected to be confirmed over the coming weeks. 

Other names rumoured to be taking part include ‘Pop Idol’ winner Will Young, daytime TV star Judge Rinder, ‘This Morning’ pair Ruth Langsford and Eamonn Holmes and presenter Laura Whitmore

The 14th series of the BBC ballroom room returns to BBC One in September.
