After months of speculation, the highly anticipated line up for this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing' was finally unveiled this week. Here is what omg! is expecting from this year's crop of celebrities.
The front runners
Denise Van Outen and Kimberley Walsh
With years of West End experience behind her, Denise Van Outen should already an accomplished dancer thanks to roles in shows such as 'Chicago' and 'Tell me on a Sunday'. Kimberley should also have an advantage given her dancing history. As part of girl band Girls Aloud, Kimberley has had to tackle an array of dance routines and also has West End experience after starring in 'Shrek the Musical'.
The Dark Horse
The Tracy Beaker star may be the youngest contestant this year but don't write her off just yet. Dani showed off her dancing ability in this year's 'Let's Dance for Comic Relief' with her energetic rendition of 'Fat Sam's Grand Slam' from Bugsy Malone.
The Competitive ones
Victoria Pendleton and Louis Smith
Olympic champions Victoria and Louis didn't win their medals by idly sitting around, it takes dedication, stamina and determination to win. Expect the two to bring this competitive spirit to the competition in spades.
Richard Arnold and Lisa Riley
Bubbly Lisa and Richard look set to bring comedy value to this year's show. Always brightening up our mornings on Daybreak with his celebrity gossip, Richard has prior dance experience when he competed alongside Kate Garraway on 'Let's Dance for Comic Relief'. As for Lisa, she should probably be watching her step more than others if only to avoid her own 'You've been Framed' moment on the dance floor.
The Eye Candy
Nicky Byrne and Colin Salmon
The men may have Kimberley and Victoria to ogle at but the women haven't been let down either with Westlife's Nicky Byrne and Bond actor Colin Salmon looking to be this year's pin ups. If they can dance as well as they look we're sure the female fans are in for a treat this year.
Never write off a cricketer. Following in the footsteps of winners Mark Ramprakash and Darren Gough, retired Michael Vaughn could be the third cricketer to win the show. Or he could just as easily be the next Phil Tufnell. We'll see.
Each year, Bruce Forsyth has a favourite competitor and it's usually because they need the confidence boost. This year's likeliest candidate is oldest contestant Johnny Ball. Even with 'It takes Two' presenter, daughter Zoe on hand to give him advice, Johnny may struggle in the competition.
The Last Hurrah
After exiting 'Eastenders', Sid Owen told the press this year that he was leaving show business for good. Clearly the thought of dressing up in pink lycra and sequins proved too tempting for the actor. We wonder, if all goes well, will Sid go back on his promise?
Doing it for the mature woman
Jerry Hall and Fern Britton
Still stunning at 56, iconic model Jerry Hall will be doing her best to prove she has the moves like, if not better than, ex husband Mick Jagger. TV presenter Fern Britton may be 55 but has already shown she can give the younger contestants a run for their money after competing in last year's Strictly Christmas special and 'Let's dance for Comic Relief'.
