Katy Brand in Let's Dance line-up

Katy Brand, Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph are among the line-up in the new series of the BBC Sport Relief show Let's Dance.

Linda and Lesley's Grumpy Old Women co-stars Jenny Eclair and Susie Blake will also take part in the show, as well as former England footballers Peter Shilton and Rodney Marsh, snooker aces Willie Thorne and Dennis Taylor and comedians Rufus Hound and Shappi Khorsandi.

Claudia Winkleman and Steve Jones will host the four-show series which starts on February 20 on BBC One, with a final dance-off on March 13.

The 2009 series of Let's Dance featured the showstopping sight of comedian Robert Webb dressed in a leotard recreating Flashdance.

The celebrities will perform dance routines to tracks such as Single Ladies by Beyonce, Greased Lightning from the Grease soundtrack, Michael Jackson's Smooth Criminal and Jai Ho from Slumdog Millionaire.

A team of choreographers and stylists will battle to get them looking the part to dance in front of a live studio audience and a guest panel of judges, who will include Jack Dee and Frank Skinner.

Meanwhile Philip Glenister will star in a golf-themed version of the BBC1 hit Ashes To Ashes for Sport Relief.

Philip, who plays Gene Hunt in the hit show, and Keeley Hawes - who plays DCI Alex Drake - try to track down a stolen trophy and interrogate sporting and entertainment legends of the '80s for the show, which will be screened on March 19.
