Alex Jones, Lulu and Jason Donovan are leading this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' line-up.

The 'One Show' presenter, the former 'Neighbours' actor and the 'Shout' hitmaker will be showing off their skills alongside Australian star Holly Vallance, McFly drummer Harry Judd and footballer Robbie Savage when the BBC One series returns to screens on September 10.

Former MP Edwina Currie, Olympic gold medallist Audley Harrison and ex-'EastEnders' actress Anita Dobson - famous for portraying Den Watts' long-suffering wife Angie in the BBC One soap - have also confirmed they will be hitting the dance floor on 'Strictly'.

Meanwhile, Italian beauty Nancy Dell'Olio - known for her relationship with ex England football manager Sven Goran Eriksson - 'Daybreak' presenter Dan Lobb, 'Waterloo Road' actress Chelsee Healey, TV astrologer Russell Grant and impressionist Rory Bremner round off the line-up for this year's series.

While the professional pairings are being kept under wraps for the time being, Brendan Cole - who previously won the show with Natasha Kaplinsky in 2004 - has made no secret of his desire to work alongside 64-year-old former politician Edwina.

Asked if he would like to dance with Edwina, he exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I don't mind who I'm partnered with, to be honest, young or old.

"I've won before with Natasha - although it was a long time ago, I still won - so I'm not bothered about winning. It's the taking part! I've had great partners in the past."

'Strictly Come Dancing' returns to BBC One on September 10 and will be presented by Tess Daly and Sir Bruce Forsyth, with Alesha Dixon, Bruno Tonioli, Len Goodman and the famously acid-tongued Craig Revel Horwood making up the judging panel once again.
