The BBC have revealed this morning on the Chris Evans Breakfast show the first celebrity to be taking part in the 2016 series.
Ed is best known for being an MP for the Labour Party and Shadow Chancellor to Ed Miliband until he spectacularly lost his seat during the 2015 General Election. As a politician Ed follows in the footsteps of Edwina Curry, Vince Cable and Anne Widdecombe in participating in Strictly. Although he won’t want to follow too closely in the footsteps of Anne!

What do you think of the first addition? Let me know in the comments section or on Facebook or Twitter. Don’t forget to like the Strictly Spoiler or follow me on those networks for chances to win prizes during the 2016 series. More details coming soon!
