Boxer Ricky Hatton is one of the most surprising names to be plucked out for this years Lets Dance For Comic Relief, with the hardman sure to set off some smiles when he drops the boxing gloves in favour of something a little more dance-floor appropriate.
Hatton is among 15 other celebrities who have signed up for the one-off show, with impressionist Jon Culshaw, ventriloquist Nina Conti and stand-up comic Tim Vine also confirmed to appear. One person who is particularly looking forward to the upcoming instalment of the show, which has been a fixture in the Comic Relief schedule since 2009, is co-host Steve Jones, who said he looks forward to this show more than any other he fronts.
