Is there no end to her talents?

| Updated:

Ruth Langsord has been revealed as the This Morning star who is doing the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The news was unveiled on the show earlier, with a big fan-fare strand.

They teased the announcement with three doors, claiming Deidre, Chris and Gino were behind them. One door was to open to reveal who was doing the BBC show.

But when the middle door was opened, there was Ruth!

Eamonn appeared utterly shocked – great acting, man!

The Loose Women panellist,  57, is the third contestant to be revealed…

Yesterday we revealed the heartthrob from EastEnders who we know as Kush Kazemi has been confirmed as the second celebrity contestant to take part in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The actor, Davood Ghadami, will be getting his dancing shoes on (and hopefully a little sequined number) to compete against fellow celebrities including The Saturdays’ Mollie King who was confirmed as a contestant yesterday.

Davood said in a statement released by the BBC that it was “such an honour” to be invited on the show. He said: “It’s going to be exciting, challenging and terrifying all at once and I am so looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone and learning to dance.”

There’s no doubt that many women will tune into the show to see the the chiselled actor strutting his stuff. A TV source told The Sun: “Producers are keen for him to get his kit off and get the audience’s pulses racing a bit.”

The source also said: “Davood is this year’s heartthrob and bosses are delighted he’s signed up. Soap stars, particularly from EastEnders, have done really well on the show previously.”

Other EastEnders stars have taken part in the competition including Tameka Empson, who plays the hilarious Kim Fox on the soap, who was on the show last year. In 2015 Kellie Bright, who plays Mick Carter’s wife Linda, dazzled viewers with her moves on the dance floor.

It was announced yesterday that singer Mollie King will be on Strictly, on Nick Grimshaw’s BBC Radio One breakfast show. TV presenter and comedian Brian Conley is also confirmed as a contestant.

Mollie said to Nick: “I’m a huge fan of Strictly Come Dancing so I can’t actually believe I’m lucky enough to be taking part in it this year!

“I’m literally so excited to learn Latin and ballroom dancing, and of course I can’t wait to get into the sequins too!

“It’s going to be a lot of hard work but I’m ready for the challenge!”
