Ogogo will give Strictly Come Dancing some punch

By Kerri-Ann Roper

Professional boxer Anthony Ogogo has been confirmed as the ninth contestant in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

"I've faced a lot of tough opposition in the past, but I've never faced anyone as tough as the Strictly judges before," the Olympic bronze medal winner said.

"My mum is a massive fan of the show, so I will be trying my hardest to make her proud."

Among the other contestants are Daniel O'Donnell, Peter Andre, weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott, broadcaster Jeremy Vine, former Coronation Street star Georgia May Foote, EastEnders actress Kellie Bright and newsreader Katie Derham.

The 13th series of Strictly starts on BBC1 next month.
