THE final line-up for Strictly 2019 has been announced.

DJ Dev Griffin, former Olympic rower James Cracknell, footballer and pundit Alex Scott and TV presenter Anneka Rice were the last names to be revealed ahead of the launch show later in the autumn.

They join comedian Chris Ramsey, former England goalkeeper David James, social media star Saffron Barker, EastEnders actor Emma Barton, Coronation Street star Catherine Tyldesley, Made in Chelsea reality TV star Jamie Laing, American TV personality Michelle Visage, Paralympic table tennis champion Will Bayley, CBBC presenter Karim Zeroual, Viscountess Emma Weymouth, BBC Breakfast sports presenter Mike Bushell,

James said: “I’m really looking forward to being a part of Strictly this year. Having spent so many years mucking around in a rowing boat with big men in tight lycra, it’s time I learned a new skill. I need to apologise to my kids in advance for the embarrassment.”

Dev, who presents the afternoon weekend show on Radio 1 alongside Alice Levine, said he was in it to win it.

"I am really good at dancing. I never had any formal dance training, but I have made myself good,” he added. “All I want is to win. I don't believe in doing things for taking part, if you are going to do something, you do it to win."

Former Arsenal and England footballer Alex, who won the Strictly Comic Relief special in 2018, said: “This is a show that I've always wanted to be a part of.”

Anneka said: “I haven’t danced since I was 7 and Miss Beer sent me home from my ballet class because I was hopelessly uncoordinated.

“My family and friends haven’t seen me dance since, not at a wedding or round a handbag so it’s going to be a challenge for my partner. In fact I’ve asked for two, one on each side. I can’t see myself in a long frilly dress either. But I’m feeling recklessly excited. Strictly has always been my Autumn’s entertainment and now I’m part of it! My children will probably leave the country”.
