And it seems like the contestants who’ve donned their dancing shoes on for this years series, are just as excited as we are. In particular, a certain Mr. Peter Andre, who’s already been eyeing up the competition.

Now, we think the 42-year-old has got some pretty good chances of holding up that Glitterball trophy – he’s got the uber bendy Janette Manrara as a partner, and let’s not forget about his Mysterious Girl moves under the waterfall from back in the day.

But if you think boxer Anthony Ogogo or Olympian Iwan Thomas are who Pete is worried about, then think again.

Helen [George] already looks like a professional and Jamelia has the hips for dancing.’

Who knew someone from Call the Midwife and a Superstar singer would have him breaking out into a sweat!

But it’s not just the girls who’s got Peter trembling at the knees.

‘Both the male and female pro dancers are incredible.’

As for those racy Strictly outfits that we know and love? If a low-V-cut sparkly number isn’t quite enough for you, then you’re in luck – they’ll be tops getting whipped off aplenty.

‘I reckon Iwan [Thomas] will be the first to take his top off, followed by Anthony [Ogogo]. Then I think it will be between Jeremy [Vine] and me.’

‘Actually, it may be Ainsley [Harriott]. He’s a dark horse, that one!’ Oo-er.

Speaking in his column in New magazine, he said: ‘Surprisingly, I’m starting to enjoy the sequins on Strictly.’ Not THAT surprising really to be honest Andre.

And as for his pairing of a pro dancer?  Peter’s hoping that the newly engaged Janette doesn’t go easy on him.

‘I really hope she works me hard because I want to learn as much as possible.’

With the dad-of-three posting a pic of him off for his first day of Strictly rehersals, looks like Janette is working him hard already!
