It’s no joke! Comedian Seann Walsh is joining Strictly
He’s hilarious, he’s got fabulous hair, but is Seann Walsh hiding some smooth moves behind his funny guy façade? It’s nearly time to find out!
If you weren’t expecting him to say yes to Strictly, you’re not the only one. “It’s just something that I and no one I know would expect me to do,” he said. “Everyone looks like they’re having so much fun on it. It makes me laugh every time I imagine doing it.”
Seann kicked off his comedy career at the age of 20 when he performed his first ever stand up gig. He’s since gone on to tour venues all over the UK, as well as bringing the laughs as a TV regular on shows such at Virtually Famous and Play To The Whistle.
Acting is also one of his strong suits, having starred in Sky’s silent comedy Three Kinds of Stupid, Jack Dee’s sitcom Bad Move, as well as his own web series The Drunk.
But Strictly is no laughing matter, especially when you’ve got a whole load of steps to learn and a manbun to perfect. Can Seann turn on the serious?
He’ll be giving it his best shot alongside Katie Piper, Faye Tozer, Danny John-Jules, Joe Sugg, Vick Hope, Graeme Swann, Dr Ranj Singh, Stacey Dooley, Ashley Roberts and Kate Silverton. See which celeb is next to join the line-up by following us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
