Former boyband singer Jay McGuiness is the 10th celebrity to waltz on to Strictly Come Dancing.

The 25-year-old, who was part of The Wanted before the group announced their hiatus in January 2014, revealed his news yesterday.

He said: "My family are such huge Strictly fans. I know I've made them very happy by taking part - I can't wait to get started!

"I love to dance but this is going to be so different from anything I have done before, I'm up for it!"

The Newark-born musician will take on Jeremy Vine, Ainsley Harriott, Kellie Bright, Georgia May Foote, Katie Derham, Carol Kirkwood, Peter Andre, Daniel O'Donnell and Anthony Ogogo for the Strictly crown.
