Two celebs confirmed so far for the 2014 series:

Frankie from The Saturdays
Judy Murray (Andy's mum)

Not sure if they are deliberately only releasing one name at a time, but it can't be long before the big reveal.

So polish off your Cuban heels and slip into something tight and sparkly, it's almost here!

Woohoo can't wait, it's my favourite, I'll miss James though

Alison Hammond has been confirmed!

I feel sorry for whoever has to pick up Alison.

I love Alison hammond. She always comes across as very genuine. I could do without Frankie from the Saturdays. Judy Murray-great!

Just saw the latest release, a good choice. It seems we are going to get the "drip drip" of a name every few days until they do the "who's dancing with who" show.

Rugby player Thom Evans is the first male celeb to be confirmed.

FrankelandFilly Thu 21-Aug-14 08:22:02

I haven't seen a date yet.

Simon Webb (from the band Blue) has just been confirmed.

Oh my word.

Davros Thu 21-Aug-14 11:28:48

Drool, I've always liked Simon Webbe

Howaboutthisone Thu 21-Aug-14 15:17:47

Oo just found this! Thanks!

It starts on fri 26th sept. I've just had an email telling me that you can register for audience tickets and it looks like there's a double fri 26th and sat 27th then Saturdays til the 20th dec!

Great line up so far!

PolkadotsAndMoonbeams Thu 21-Aug-14 17:11:46

It was an odd number last year too, I think there was one more woman. I'm pretty sure actually, because Anton used to dance group ballroom with Iveta, but not do the Latin.

MrsCK Fri 22-Aug-14 20:12:53

I think it might start on the 20th September....only because tumble finishes on the 13th. I could well be wrong!

MrsCK Fri 22-Aug-14 20:14:40

Mark Wright has just been announced too.

Redcoats Fri 22-Aug-14 20:15:35

Sooo going to miss Artem and his chest and Robin sad

Otoh hello Simon Webbe

Redcoats Fri 22-Aug-14 20:25:58

Sparkling I think you need to email that pic to that Vicky costume designer lady in case she needs some ideas.

Howaboutthisone Fri 22-Aug-14 22:37:48

Mrsck it starts on the 26th. See below!
Unless there's a preview on the 20th

MrsBungle Fri 22-Aug-14 22:41:03

No James Jordan this year?!

Redcoats Fri 22-Aug-14 22:43:34

James wasn't invited back this year. Just Ola.
He's currently making an arse of himself in Big brother.

WildThong Fri 22-Aug-14 22:45:07

Hello Thom grin

RiojaHaze Fri 22-Aug-14 22:50:50

I think Alison Hammond is going to be great; she seems up for a laugh and full of life.
