Brian Conley has signed up to 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 55-year-old comedian is reportedly set to star in the upcoming series of the BBC One ballroom and latin show and producers hope he will bring some humour to proceedings.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Brian is all signed up for the show and is sure to be a laugh a minute. He's a born performer and really knows how to get a crowd going given his years of experience playing Buttons in panto.
"From eating fire on Loose Women earlier this year to flashing his rear on The Wright Stuff - 'Dangerous Brian' certainly won't be afraid to try anything on the Strictly dance floor. He was addicted to the series last year and even came to watch the live shows to get some tips - he really can't wait to get going."
Meanwhile, the Saturdays singer Mollie King is also said to have signed up for the show.
A source said recently: "Mollie is all signed up and will be this year's 'Strictly' babe. She's a talented performer because of all her experience with The Saturdays and her solo career - so she's someone who is very likely to make it to the final rounds.
"Producers loved the sex appeal and performance skills of Daisy Lowe last year and believe Mollie offers the same. She's also very well connected and has a lot of celebrity friends who will attend filming each week."
The 'Strictly Come Dancing' line-up is being kept under wraps but it is "almost complete", according to an insider.
They said: "There are now just a handful of famous faces who are yet to sign on the dotted line to take part in the 15th series of the show. There will again be 15 stars taking to the ballroom when the show returns to BBC One this autumn."
