Another celeb confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing

The fourth famous face to be hitting the dance floor on Strictly this year has been revealed, and it's somebody that nobody predicted... or probably even knows of.

Okay well some of you might. It's Ore Oduba! Nope, not the actress from Orange is the New Black unfortunately. He's a sports journalist over in England, but like, an important one apparently. He was one of the leading presenters on the BBC for the 2012 London Olympic Game, and is currently in Rio doing the same.

There he is now, inflatable finger and all.


Toes already twinkling here in Rio @bbcstrictly... Just working on the hips! #Strictly #Romeo #rio2016 #secretlatino

Oduba, who also appears on BBC Breakfast, said: "I've been such a huge fan of the show for over a decade. So to actually take to the Strictly stage myself, I don't think I've been more nervously excited - aside from on my wedding day. Let's hope for fewer tears!"


Ore follows previously announced celebs Laura Whitmore, Will Young and former UK politician Ed Balls. More will be announced in the coming days.
