James Bond actor Colin Salmon will appear in 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The actor is the 14th contestant to be revealed to be taking part in the BBC One ballroom dancing show.
He had managed to successfully conceal his identity at the weekend when he entered the first rehearsal session hiding his face behind a Bruce Forsyth mask.
Colin has appeared in three Bond films playing MI6 chief Charles Robinson and is one of Britain's most highly regarded actors.
He has also had roles in 'Spooks' and 'Law And Order UK' as well as films including 'How to Stop being a Loser' and 'Resident Evil: Retribution'.
Many of the other celebrities weren't so good at hiding their identities as they arrived for rehearsals at London's Royal Academy of Dance on Saturday (08.09.12).
Contestants include Texan model Jerry Hall - the ex-wife of The Rolling Stones singer Sir Mick Jagger - former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan, actress Dani Harmer, Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh and TV host Denise Van Outen.
The show will also include Olympians in the form of gold medal winning cyclist Victoria Pendleton and gymnast Louis Smith.
Former 'This Morning' host Fern Britton will dance as will Westlife singer Nicky Byrne and TV star Richard Arnold.
Representing the soaps will be ex-'Emmerdale' actress Lisa Riley and former 'EastEnders' star Sid Owen.
The line up is completed by 74-year-old TV star Johnny Ball.
'Strictly Come Dancing' returns on Saturday (15.09.12).
