The first five celebrities taking part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing have been announced.

England football legend David James, comedian Chris Ramsey, Eastenders star Emma Barton, Social Media star Saffron Barker and Corrie actress Catherine Tyldesley will be waltzing onto our screens this Autumn.

James, Ramsey and Barton were confirmed to be taking part yesterday when they appeared on The One Show alongside last year#s winner Stacey Dooley.

Meanwhile, YouTube sensation, Saffron, was revealed to be joining the line-up on Heart Radio this morning.

Barker told host and former Strictly finalist Ashley Roberts that it's a "dream come true".

"I am really excited to go on the Strictly journey and am feeling very grateful for the opportunity!" she said.

"I’m looking forward to learning all of the dances, finding out who my partner is, getting to wear the costumes and to just experience this once in a lifetime opportunity."

Catherine was revealed to be joining the line-up this afternoon.

Stay tuned for more announcements!

Strictly Come Dancing is back later this year on BBC One.
