The Mysterious Girl hitmaker, who married his fiancee Emily MACDonagh in July (15), will compete against fellow celebrities including British soap stars Georgia May Foote and Kellie Bright to be crowned winner of the dance contest.

He says, "Strictly Come Dancing is an incredible show. I've always loved watching it on TV and to be honest I'm flattered to have been asked to take part before, but due to certain work commitments was unable to. I now feel the time is right to give it a go - everything has just clicked into place to do it this year. Wish me luck please."
