Remaining trio were scheduled to be unveiled on Friday's The One Show

The full Strictly line-up has been leaked

The identities of the final three Strictly Come Dancing contestants have been leaked – ahead of a planned announcement on The One Show tomorrow evening.

Masterchef star Gregg Wallacereported by The Sunday People last month to be having four tattoos removed in preparation − Bargain Hunt’s Tim Wonnacott and Mrs Brown's Boys star Jennifer Gibney are said to be the trio rounding off the line-up, according to The Sun.

If correct, they will join Caroline Flack, Pixie Lott, Scott Mills, Steve Backshall, Sunetra Sarker, Mark Wright, Simon Webbe, Thom Evans, Alison Hammond, Judy Murray, Frankie Bridge and Jake Wood.

Pop star Pixie is the early bookies’ favourite to win.

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

It launches on on BBC1 on September 7 – and clashes head on with Simon Cowell’s X Factor on ITV.

Caroline Flack

TV presenter Caroline Flack was unwittingly outed as a member of this year's Strictly cast by pal Sarah-Jane Crawford.

Crawford, who replaced Flack presenting the Xtra Factor, tweeted "Lovely catching up with @carolineflack1 this AM, drinks soon twinkle toes? Now smash Strictly #girlpower." - but soon realised her error and deleted the tweet.

Our Beeb source said: “Producers think Caroline is very pretty and has bags of sex ­appeal.”

She became a co-presenter of ITV2 ­companion show Xtra Factor in 2011 but was axed in June and replaced by Crawford.

Caroline, 34, had to rise above a hate campaign after she dated One Direction’s Harry Styles, 20.

She lives with music boss Jack Street, 24, in North London.

Pixie Lott

Pop star Pixie Lott confirmed she would be dancing her way into our living rooms as she joins the line up for this year's Strictly.

The 23-year-old singer-songwriter, model and actress said: ""I'm so excited to be doing Strictly, it's going to be a lot of fun. I always want to push myself as a performer so can't wait to learn the routines."

Pixie started her career young, appearing in a West End production of 'Chitty Chitty Bang Bang at the London Palladium aged just 13, before embarking on a pop career in 2009.

Despite having a showbiz childhood, she says she got straight As on her GCSEs.

She's had great success as a singer, selling more than 1.5million copies of her debut album, and scoring number ones with her first two singles.

Steve Backshall

Naturalist Steve Backshall says Strictly will be his "wildest challenge by far!"

The animal show presenter is best known for his work on CBBC's Deadly 60, for which he won two BAFTAs in 2011.

When he announced he'd be taking to the dancefloor this autumn, he said: "My day job filming wildlife in jungles and swamps is nothing like as scary as what is ahead.

"I think Strictly Come Dancing is going to be my wildest challenge by far!"

He's also the proud owner of a gold Blue Peter badge, awarded to him by Helen Skelton and Barney Harwood in June 2012.

Frankie Bridge


Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge was the first contestant confirmed for this year's Strictly, and has been training hard in anticipation.

When she announced she'd be going on the show, she said: “I’m such a huge fan of Strictly! I’ve always wanted to be a part of the show – it looks like so much fun and the costumes are just gorgeous.

“Like so many little girls, I used to take dance lessons when I was in primary school and I really love dancing but this is going to be so different from anything I have done with The Saturdays. I just can’t wait to get started!”

Frankie married footballer Wayne Bridge in July, at a star-studded ceremony at a Bedfordshire stately home.

She shot to fame at the age of 12 as a member of S Club Juniors. By the age of 16, she'd had six top-ten singles. Since joining the Saturdays she's added four top-ten albums and 13 top-ten hit singles to that list.

Thom Evans


Former rugby star Thom Evans is looking forward to donning tight fitting and sparkly outfits as he joins the show's 2014 line-up.

The Scottish international quit the game after suffering a serious neck injury in 2010.

On joining the Strictly dance card, he said: "I'm so happy to be doing the show, I cannot wait to get started. I'm really looking forward to my Strictly makeover - bring on Strictly and bring on the spandex."

He's also Radio 2 DJ Chris Evans' cousin, and used to go out with Kelly Brook.

Alison Hammond

TV presenter Alison Hammond was the third celeb to be confirmed for Strictly 2014.

Birmingham born Alison shot to fame as a contestant on series three of Big Brother back in 2002.

Since then, she's appeared as This Morning's showbiz reporter, interviewing such megastars as Hugh Jackman, Will Smith and George Clooney.

Announcing the news on the ITV daytime show, she said: "I am absolutely overjoyed to be joining the Strictly team. I am ready to immerse myself in glitter and hard work, with a dash of fun along the way!"

Scott Mills

Radio 1 DJ Scott Mills said he would be "honoured" to join the all-star cast of this year's Strictly, and hoped it would be the start of a new skill for him.

The veteran radio host has been a staple of the BBC's flagship station for 15 years, making him one of the longest serving presenters.

"My listeners are so used to me playing pranks that they're probably going to think this is just another one," he joked, after announcing he was set to take to the floor, adding: "It's not, I really am doing this!"

He continued: "When I was younger, my nan danced the foxtrot and waltz and it would be great for me to learn those dances, but I will be out of my comfort zone.

"Whatever happens, I'm really looking forward to the weekly fake tans!"

Judy Murray

Judy Murray is confident the recent progress made by Laura Robson and Heather Watson gives her Fed Cup team a fighting chance of advancing to the World Group for the first time in 20 years.

Tennis coach Judy Murray was the second celeb to be confirmed for the 2014 series of Strictly.

The veteran coach - and mother of Wimbledon champion Andy - said: "I'm a huge Strictly Come Dancing Fan but a total armchair dancer. It's going to be a big challenge for me and for whoever has to dance with me, but I absolutely can't wait to get started!"

Born in Bridge of Allan in Scotland, Judy qualified as a tennis coach aged 17 and went on to become the eighth best female player in the UK.

She's mother to both Andy Murray and Wimbledon Mixed Doubles champion Jamie Murray, but one of her sons isn't too pleased about her waltzing onto TV screens.

Andy Murray is reportedly "embarrassed" about his mum's appearance on the show, and wouldn't be attending the live shows to support her.

For her part, Judy didn't tell Andy she'd be appearing - and doesn't much care that he's embarrassed.

Sunetra Sarker

Casualty star Sunetra Sarker admits to being nervous about hitting the dancefloor in this year's contest.

Best known for her role as Dr Zoe Hanna in the long running BBC drama, the 41-year-old has also starred in Doctor Who, Brookside and No Angels.

She said: “I don't quite know what I've let myself in for... I'm in total denial!

"But the chance to swap my stethoscope for sequins was just too tempting. I am very excited to be part of the Strictly team!”

Simon Webbe

Blue singer Simon Webbe must have really enjoyed his appearance on 2011's Strictly Christmas special, because he's signed up for the series proper this year.

The 36-year-old pop star said: "I am so happy to be joining the team and I cannot wait to get started. 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."

But there might be some friction in the Blue camp. Back in February bandmate Duncan James said he fancied a quick step onto TV screens, after finishing third in Dancing on Ice.

James told OK!: "I really want to do it this year. Fingers are crossed."

This could get awkward.

Jake Wood

EastEnders star Jake Wood is to waltz from Walford onto our screens this year, as he joins the 2014 Strictly cast.

The 42-year-old actor, who plays Max Branning on the soap, will follow in the footsteps of other Albert Square favourites to have competed on the programme, such as Scott Maslen (Jack Branning) and Charlie Brooks (Janine Butcher).

He said: "I'm really relishing the prospect of hitting the Strictly dance floor this year," he said. 

"I'm doing it for all the dads out there and you never know, there's always a chance of being the first Walford resident to take home the Glitterball. Bring it on!"

Mark Wright

Former TOWIE star Mark Wright says his mates aren't confident in his dancing prowess as he prepares to take to the floor on this year's Strictly.

He admitted being called "Marky-no-moves" by friends because of his general lack of rhythm.

Mark, 27, said: “Doing Strictly is going to be so completely different from anything I’ve done before.

“I’m the sort of guy who loves to bust out some moves at a party but I’m certainly not a natural dancer.

“Any of my friends would tell you that - they call me ‘Marky-no-moves’!

All in the sun today re the final 3.

Why would he need tattoo's removed??
(a) they can cover them in make-up, if really that bad and on show (he'll be in a suit won't he most of the time
(b) - will he (greg wallace) really be in that long????

and Tim Wonnacot then at 61 the oldest celeb then this year??
(see they finally got rid of the 70+'s er!!)
Jennifer Gibney then looking good for 57!

He apparently had a spider on his leg, a footie one on his chest and another one on his forearm.

All easily covered up, but I suppose he wants to do the naked chest thing at some point in SCD. And why not, he's shed loads of weight and probably wants to show it off!
Remember, Ginger Rogers did everything Fred Astaire did, but backwards and in high heels.
