Say hello to Robert Webb, our second Strictly celebrity of 2021!

Actor and author Robert Webb is the second celebrity contestant confirmed for our brand new series returning in the Autumn!

Robert said: “I am ludicrously excited to be taking part in Strictly this year. It’s a big, generous, joyful show and I can’t wait to get packed into a spandex onesie and fired from a glitter cannon directly at Claudia Winkleman. At least I think that’s what happens. My goal is to try and survive from week to week without causing serious injury to myself or innocent bystanders. I know it’s going to be a challenge. To do well in this competition is a test of character, although mainly it’s a test of dancing.”

BAFTA winner Robert Webb is a television, film and theatre actor well known for his starring roles in Peep Show, That Mitchell and Webb Look and Back, and for his comedy partnership with David Mitchell. Also an acclaimed author, his memoir, How Not To Be A Boy, went on to become a No.1 Sunday Times Best Seller and his debut novel, Come Again, was published last year.

The news was revealed this evening on BBC’s The One Show. Robert joins Tom Fletcher in our line-up. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for the next Strictly 2021 reveals.
