From the sportsworld, the first boxer ever to appear on Strictly is Welsh champion Joe Calzhaghe, tennis superstar Martina Hingis, track and field champ Jade Johnson, jockey Richard Dunwoody and cricketer Phil Tufnell.

And finally there are the TV personalities: Lynda Bellingham who currently presents Loose Women, BBC Breakfast News's sports correspondant Chris Hollins, copper-turned-presenter Rav Wilding from Crimewatch and Ronnie Wood's rock 'n roll wife Jo Wood who now produces her own range of organic skincare products.
