The group dance will start Saturday’s episode of the hit BBC One show, a week after Olympic rower James Cracknell became the first star to crash out of the competition.

Movie Week will see the celebrities dance to famous film songs.

Mike Bushell will channel Hollywood heartthrob Channing Tatum as he dances to The Weather Girls’ classic 1982 hit It’s Raining Men, which was used in Magic Mike, a film about male strippers.

Songs from films including Moana, Aladdin, Austin Powers and Batman Forever will also be used during the episode.

Strictly Come Dancing continues on BBC One.
