The first three celebrities taking part in Strictly Come Dancing were announced on Tuesday's edition of The One Show.

1. Caroline Quentin

Award-winning actress and presenter.

Caroline says: “I am thrilled and terrified in equal measure to be taking part.”

2. Jason Bell

Broadcaster and former NFL player.

Jason says: “Strictly is the epitome of British television and this year, more than ever, I’m so proud and humbled to be participating. Strictly was the first show I ever watched when I moved to the UK and I’m a massive fan. My 6 year-old daughter never got the chance to see me run out on the field at an NFL game but she is very excited about me taking to the dance floor. I hope I can do her proud.”

3. Max George

Singer and actor.

Max says: "Buzzing to be on Strictly this year. Not really one for the dance floor, but I take a lot of comfort in the fact that Jay McGuiness set The Wanted’s bar so low...”

Strictly Come Dancing returns later this year on BBC One.
