There’s been speculation over who will be taking part in SCD 2011 for weeks, and the line-up has finally been revealed! Have a look below to see who will be strutting their stuff on the dance floor.

Nancy Dell’olio


Most famous for being the ex-girlfriend of former England manager Sven Goran Eriksson, we reckon Italian Nancy will be pretty fiery on the dancefloor!

Chelsee Healey


Played Janeece Bryant in BBC drama Waterloo Road, she’s young which is usually an advantage on the show – and we have a feeling she’ll be wearing some pretty revealing outfits!

Anita Dobson


Known and loved for playing Angie Watts in Eastenders for many years, Anita Dobson is the latest in a long line of Eastenders stars to take part in Strictly! Perhaps she’ll follow in the footsteps of last yea’rs winner, Kara Tointon?

Holly Valance


We thought Holly was just doing bad adverts these days, but she’s now set to take to the Strictly stage! We know from her music videos that Holz can dance, so she should be an interesting contestant to watch in the competition!

Lulu


We love music legend Lulu, so we’re overjoyed that she’s on the show. We wonder if she’ll ‘Shout’ at the judges if they give her negative comments? Ha ha!

Edwina Curry


We hate to say it, but if we were to bet on which contestant would be this years Ann Widdecombe – our money would be on former MP Edwina. She might surprise us though!

Alex Jones


Following in the footsteps of fellow One show presenter Matt Baker, Alex is preparing to shimmy her way around the strictly dance floor. Random fact for you here – Alex used to date Steve Jones, the new X factor USA host.

Robbie Savage


Footballer Robbie strongly denied that he was taking part in the show even a few days ago – yet here he is in the line up! The former Welsh International player is known for being a bit controversial, so here’s hoping he’ll stand up to the judges!

Rory Bremner


Will impressionist Rory Bremner be a good dancer? We don’t know, but we’re praying he does an impression of Bruno!

Harry Judd


Mcfly star Harry Judd will have teenage girls all over the country tuning in to the show – and voting – every week. Harry may be a dab hand on the drums, but we wonder if he’ll be able to master the subtle rhythm of the Waltz?

Russell Grant


If you read this name and thought ‘who?’ then you’re not alone – we did too. However after a quick google we were able to establish that Russell is an expert in all things astrology – and a pet psychic. Right.

Dan Lobb


Daybreak’s Dan Lobb is also a retired tennis player – so he should have some nifty footwork skills. Has the potential to become the heartthrob of the show too, we know we wouldn’t mind seeing him with his shirt off!

Audley Harrison


Boxer Audley is very tall, and may be a bit ungainly on the dancefloor. We’d be far too scared to give him bad comments though – so maybe he’ll go all the way!

Jason Donovan


Everyone knows who Jason is! The star has taken part in both musicals and pantomimes before now – which we’re pretty sure must have included some dancing, so we’d expect him to fare pretty well in the competition. He’s popular too.

What do you think of the line up? Got any favourites to win yet? x

Celebrity Big Brother – It’s here!

The most talked about TV show of the last few months FINALLY hit our screens last night, and what a launch show it was! Channel 5 pulled out all the stops to ensure that the relaunch of Big Brother was bigger and better than ever before. AND after weeks of speculation we found out just […]

The most talked about TV show of the last few months FINALLY hit our screens last night, and what a launch show it was!

Channel 5 pulled out all the stops to ensure that the relaunch of Big Brother was bigger and better than ever before. AND after weeks of speculation we found out just who was heading in to the house – at last!

As expected Tabloid Queen Kerry Katona, Essex babe Amy Childs and teen popstars Jedward were all revealed as housemates – but there were a few surprises in the line-up too! Read on for the full list, and all the gossip from the first show.

Kerry Katona

Tabloid queen Kerry was first in to the house, with a hairstyle that can only be described as ‘the Jedward’. She was clearly a bag of nerves, and cracked open the champers as soon as she got in to the house, proceeding to breathe far to heavily in to her microphone. She’s also been set the first challenge by Big Brother – read on to find out more!

Tara Reid

Was it just us, or did American Pie’s Tara, who got married just TWO days ago (she’s obviously not that bothered about having a honeymoon!) seem just a little bit on the strange side? She tottered up to host Brian Dowling with a look of complete confusion on her face, stumbled in to the house and started calling Kerry Katona, “Kerrah” – telly at its best, and this is just the launch show!

The bizarre sight of Kerry Katona sharing a glass of champagne with an American movie star was interrupted by the rest of the housemates – here’s a quick run down of just who you’ll be watching for the next three weeks!

Paddy Doherty

My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding’s Paddy seemed rather sweet considering he’s a bare knuckle fighter – but his accent is impossible to understand. The confused looks and blank stares as he introduced himself to his fellow housemates were priceless.

Amy Childs

No surprises here – the TOWIE star has been a rumoured Housemate for weeks. A very glamourous and pouty looking Amy strutted in to the house like a pro and greeted “Kerrah” like an old friend – they partied in Marbella this summer so BB will be a nice little reunion for the pair! We’re praying she asks Tara if she wants a Vajazzle!

Mr Paparrazi, Darren Lyons

Wacky Darren – a showbiz pap- arrived in a whirl of gold suit, pink Mohican and his pet parrot’s feathers hanging from his hair. An understated entrance then. Will the stars suck up to him in the hope the next pap shots of their misbehaviour may not be published? Time will tell!

Lucien Laviscount

Finally we were treated to a bit of eye candy in the form of actor Lucien, who you might recognize from Coronation Street. The cheeky chappy seemed to catch the eye of Amy straight away, as her eyelash fluttering and pouting went in to overdrive! Let’s hope this is the first signs of a romance brewing!

Sally Bercow

Sally is the wife of the Speaker in the House of Commons, and admitted that he wasn’t pleased she was taking part in the show. We think she seems feisty, and could make a very interesting housemate!

Pamela Bach Hasslehoff

Pamela, ex-wife of the infamous “Hoff” and Baywatch star was next into the house, after an entrance that can only be described as crazy. Host Brian Dowling – who we thought did a brilliant job, by the way – looked terrified as she hugged him, called him ‘buttercup’ and told him he looked like her dog! We think Pam is going to be pretty entertaining viewing.

Bobby Sabel

Hooray for model Bobby Sabel, who had all the females smiling the minute he walked down the stairs… unfortunately for them he admitted that he’s ‘rubbish with girls’!

Jedward

Last, but definitely not least, pop due Jedward came hurtling out on to the stage, cartwheeling hi-fiving and generally acting like two small children on Christmas morning – after eating a truckload of sugar. We’re not sure, but we think we may have heard Kerry mutter ‘oh no’ as they bounded into the house, while poor Tara seemed completely bewildered by the mad pair!

SO, that’s your lot – and here at Gala we think it’s a pretty amazing line-up! We’ll definitely be tuning in tonight to watch Kerry – who was set the first task by Big Brother. She has to throw a full-on diva strop and make sure the housemates vote her ‘biggest diva’ in a days time – bring it on!

Who do you want to win?
