Strictly Come Dancing Lineup

Strictly Come Dancing 2013 line-up announced Sophie Ellis-Bextor, Abbey Clancy, Vanessa Feltz and Mark Benton are among the fifteen celebrities set to star in the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Joining them on the dance floor will be Ashley Taylor Dawson, Ben Cohen, Dave Myers, Deborah Meaden, Fiona Fullerton, Julien MacDonald, Natalie Gumede, Patrick Robinson, Rachel Riley, Susanna Reid and Tony Jacklin.

Waterloo Road actor Mark Benton is likely to feel quite at home on the glitzy show as he is currently starring, in drag, as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray at The Playhouse Theatre in Edinburgh. As the role requires him to totter around the stage in heels and a wig bigger than Kanye West’s ego on a nightly basis, he’s currently getting in some great practice for the BBC show!

Hairspray runs at The Edinburgh Playhouse until Saturday, 14 September 2013. Tickets are on sale now and available here.
