Comedian Brian Conley has been revealed as the 10th celebrity to join the Strictly Come Dancing line-up.

The 56-year-old told BBC Radio 2's Steve Wright that he had been keeping his part in the series a secret since Christmas.

He said: "I've known for some time and I'm just happy to be here, get that spray tan on, my Essex orange."

Conley said his main concern is the physical side of things, but is more than happy to don the glittery outfits.

He joked: "I haven't got a left or a right hip, I've got a good one and a bad one. That's the thing I'm worried about, am I going to keep up physically? It is very demanding."

Conley is best known for being a comedian, a presenter and a singer and has been a fixture on Britain's TV screens for over 30 years.

He has presented many TV shows over the years, including his own comedy variety programme The Brian Conley Show.
