JB Gill is the latest star added to the line up for brand new celebrity dance show 'Dance Dance Dance'
JB Gill is to compete on 'Dance Dance Dance'.
The 29-year-old former JLS singer previously turned down 'Strictly Come Dancing' as the schedule clashed with the group's tour in 2013, however, he has now joined the line up for the forthcoming ITV show and will compete alongside 'Doctors' actress Lucy-Jo Hudson and former 'The Only Way is Essex' star Jessica Wright.
JB has plenty of dancing experience under his belt having previously won the 'Strictly Come Dancing Christmas' special Glitterball in 2012.
Rumoured competitors include EastEnders' actor Jonny Labey and Emmerdale star Fiona Wade.
The stars will be judged by former 'Got To Dance' judges Kimberley Wyatt and Diversity leader Ashley Banjo, with two further judges expected to be announced at a later date.
Hosting the new show is former 'Strictly' star Alesha Dixon, who can't wait to get stuck in with her new role.
She told the Daily Star newspaper: "The art of dance has always played a big part in my life so this show is the perfect fit for me.
"The standard of dance is very high and I can't wait for the public to see these iconic performances brought back to life."
The six-part series, which will be a major competitor for the BBC's 'Strictly', will see celebrities team up with their partner, a friend or a relative as they perform an iconic dance in the hope of impressing the tough-talking judging panel.
A source previously explained: "The show has an amazing special effects budget and will see the celebs doing routines like Ed Sheeran from his 'Thinking Out Loud' video or 'Jai Ho' from 'Slumdog Millionaire'.
"There will be five celebs who will probably have a strong dance background pairing up with their partner or mate. All the audience will be familiar with the dances and it's hoped the show will be a huge hit." 'Dance Dance Dance' will appear on ITV in the early 2017.
