Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke will say Hi-de-hi to a new dance partner in the show's Christmas special.

The dancer, who was paired with Nancy Dell'Olio in this year's series, will dance with actress Su Pollard in the show.

Su, who played chalet maid Peggy in the holiday camp sitcom, will appear with former boxer Barry McGuigan and EastEnders star Charlie Brooks in the festive show.

She said: "Strictly Come Dancing is strictly must-see Christmas Day television. I'm hoping to wow the judges and the viewers with my utter exuberance and prowess."

Simon Webbe, from boyband Blue, and comic Debra Stephenson round off the cast of celebrities appearing in the popular BBC One ballroom programme.

Boxer Barry, who was world featherweight champion, said: "I'm looking forward to Strictly Come Dancing, it's a challenge. I've always considered myself to have two left feet and I want to surprise myself."

The five celebrities will be performing different dances to impress the Strictly judges and studio audience to collect the special trophy.

The other professional dancers appearing on the show are Erin Boag, Ian Waite, Katya Virshilas and Vincent Simone.
