EastEnders star Wood joins Strictly

EastEnders bad boy Jake Wood is heading for the Strictly Come Dancing dance floor.

Jake plays womaniser Max Branning in the BBC soap. Away from Albert Square he is a father-of-two who enjoys rock-climbing, running, cycling and boxing.

He said: "I'm doing it for all the dads out there and you never know, there's always a chance of being the first Walford resident to take home the glitter ball... Bring it on!"

He will be joining Mark Wright, who shot to fame on reality show The Only Way Is Essex, singers Simon Webbe and Frankie Bridge, former rugby player Thom Evans, presenter Alison Hammond, tennis matriarch Judy Murray, actress Sunetra Sarker and seven other celebrities as they compete for the glitter ball trophy.
