Boyband star Simon Webbe is the fifth celebrity to join the Strictly Come Dancing line-up. 

The Blue member confirmed the news while making an appearance on ITV's Good Morning Britain.

‘I am so happy to be joining the team and I cannot wait to get started,’ Simon said.

He's not Blue anymore: Simon Webbe signs up for Strictly Come Dancing after last year declaring himself bankrupt

‘I'm hopeful that Strictly Come Dancing will help me to improve on my daddy dancing skills. I want to make my daughter proud and no doubt she will be teaching me a pirouette or two along the way.’

The singer has a 17-year olf daughter, Alanah, with ex-girlfriend Nicola Jones, and last October declared himself bankrupt.

Simon previously tested his dancing skills on the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas Special in 2011, when he danced the cha-cha with professional partner Katya Virshilas.

This is the second reality show Webbe will take part in the last 18 months after appearing on the Big Reunion with his Blue bandmates Antony Costa, Lee Ryan and Duncan James.

Simon will be dancing his socks off against ex-rugby star Thom Evans, TV presenter Alison Hammond, Andy Murray’s Judy and Frankie Bridge (née Sandford) and 10 other celebrities as they compete for the coveted glitter ball trophy.

The Saturdays star Frankie has been getting help from her footballer hubby to get into shape before the show.

A source said: ‘Frankie began training with Wayne six weeks ago when she first started talking with producers about appearing on 'Strictly'.

Bring on the glitter and hard work: Alison can't wait to get started on the latest season of the dance show

‘She knew how gruelling the dance training would be, and wanted to make sure she was ready for it.

‘Plus the costumes are very revealing and she wants to feel confident on the dancefloor.

They added: ‘She and Wayne have been going on three-mile morning runs and he's worked out a high-protein diet for her, to make sure she's as strong and toned as possible.’

The new series will be the first one without veteran host Sir Bruce Forsyth, with Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman sharing the presenting job.
