Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly will be welcoming a new crop of celebs on Strictly

A model, a Bond girl and a Hairy Biker are all lined up to star in this year's Strictly Come Dancing, it has been reported.

The BBC One ballroom show has lined up 15 stars including Murder On The Dancefloor singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor, rugby player Ben Cohen and Coronation Street's Natalie Gumede for the new series.

The Sun reported the full line-up also includes Fiona Fullerton, who starred in A View To A Kill, Ashley Taylor Dawson from Hollyoaks, Patrick Robinson from Casualty and fashion designer Julien Macdonald.

Other names include actor Mark Benton, BBC Breakfast host Susanna Reid, Dragons Den star Deborah Meaden, and TV chef Dave Myers.

Already named for the show - which is hosted by Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly - were Countdown star Rachel Riley, model and TV presenter Abbey Clancy, golfer Tony Jacklin and Vanessa Feltz.

Susanna told BBC Breakfast she was "really excited" about taking part in the "Strictly experience", but was worried about the competition from the other celebrities.

She said: "When I saw them in rehearsals they already looked like pros."

The presenter said she was already feeling the strain of training and was "aching in places I've never ached before".

Trust your instincts regarding moneymaking offers. If a job seems too good to be true, it probably is. Working as part of a campaigning team will suit you down to the ground. You're more motivated to help people than turn big profits. Some friends will discourage you from entering such a field, fearing it won't be lucrative. Don't worry. You'll make a very good salary by doing what you love. Contrary to popular belief, you don't have to be miserable to earn a good living.More
