Russell Grant has been granted a regular slot on 'This Morning'.

The former 'Strictly Come Dancing' star has been given his own segment on the ITV1's daytime chat show after his one-off Latin dancing workouts proved extremely popular with the audience.

A TV insider told The Sun newspaper: "They've been a big hit with viewers."

The eccentric astrologer and his dance partner Flavia Cacace have been booked to appear on 'This Morning' all summer, showing the British public how to get fit with seductive Latin fitness workouts.

The portly star originally partnered with Flavia when he appeared on 'Strictly' in 2011 and impressed ITV1 bosses with his sexy moves and funny routines.

A post on the 'This Morning' website says of the regular slot: "It's the funnest way to get fit this summer and it's here on This Morning - get ready to Zalza with Russell Grant and Flavia Cacace!"

Russell is also set to appear in Channel 5's new 'Celebrity Wedding Planner'.
