Sunday Express - - Jennifer Selway - By Giles Sheldrick

THE line-up for this year’s Strictly Come Danc­ing is com­plete with MasterChef judge Gregg Wal­lace the last to join the show.

Gregg, 49, was un­veiled last night along­side Bar­gain Hunt pre­sen­ter Tim Won­na­cott and Mrs Brown’s Boys ac­tress Jen­nifer Gib­ney.

The trio join 12 other celebri­ties pre­par­ing to do ball­room bat­tle when the show starts a week to­mor­row.

Ex-green­gro­cer Gregg said: “I love the show and I love danc­ing. I can’t wait to live in a Strictly bub­ble.”

Auc­tion­eer Tim, 61, ad­mit­ted he signed up to im­press his wife on their 30th wed­ding an­niver­sary.

“She loves danc­ing but it’s never been my spe­cial­ity. I would love to pick up even just a few moves so that come our an­niver­sary, I can take her out and show her a good time,” he said.

Also on the show will be singers Frankie Bridge, Si­mon Webbe and Pixie Lott, TV hosts Steve Back­shall, Caro­line Flack and Ali­son Ham­mond and ten­nis star Andy Mur­ray’s mum, Judy.

Rugby player Thom Evans, Towie’s Mark Wright, Ca­su­alty star Sune­tra Sarker, Ra­dio 1 DJ Scott Mills and EastEnders ac­tor Jake Wood will also take part.

A show in­sider said: “There is a real feel­ing the class of 2014 is one of the strong­est yet.”

Strictly Come Danc­ing starts on BBC One on Sun­day, Septem­ber 7 at 8pm.
