Strictly Come Dancing Series 9 launches this week!

The launch show for Strictly Come Dancing Series 9, which is being recorded on Wednesday, will be broadcast this Saturday at 6.10pm.

Contrary to reports, the full line up has not been released yet, although new rumours include Harry Judd from McFly (who won Children in Need's last show with Ola Jordan - no pressure!), the evergreen and effervescent Lulu - who I think would be a great contestant, following her appearance on Let's Dance for Comic Relief earlier this year - Daybreak sports presenter Dan Lobb, impressionist Rory Bremner and Waterloo Road's Chelsee Healey.

According to the sun, the line up will be revealed on Tuesday's The One Show, but the celebs won't find out their partners till Wednesday.

Dolly Parton will be the first musical guest of this series.

Arlene Philips, Darren Bennett and Lilia Kopylova will be appearing at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, discussing the transformative power of dance.
