Strictly Come Dancing contestants

As the autumn nights draw in and the central heating whirrs into use, a new group of twinkletoed celebrities embark on the arduous training process to endeavour to impress us in the next series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Once the line up has been announced, we list the names, ages and professions of each contestant below as an extra tool for making an informed punt.
