Mark Wright is the latest celebrity to sign up for Strictly Come Dancing.

The TV star, who shot to fame on reality show The Only Way Is Essex, is the sixth celebrity revealed from this year's line-up.

"I'm genuinely petrified about dancing on national telly but Strictly is such an amazing show to be a part of and I can't wait to get stuck in and give it my all," Mark said.

The hit ballroom dancing show returns to BBC One this autumn.

He joins Blue singer Simon Webbe, former rugby star Thom Evans, This Morning presenter Alison Hammond, Judy Murray and The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge in the hit BBC ballroom show.

They will be joined by 10 other celebrities, who are yet to be revealed, all competing for the glitter ball trophy.
