Will Young will star on the next series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The gay singer and actor will be samba-ing in sequins come September.
The official BBC Strictly Twitter account confirmed the news. Young is the second celebrity confirmed for the 2016 series after Labour politician Ed Balls.

Young was the original Pop Idol winner, the beginning of the start of Simon Cowell’s singing competition show empire.
He teased the reveal earlier today on his own social media account:

Young’s last album, 85% Proof, went to number one in 2015. He has also starred in the West End, being nominated for an Olivier award after appearing in Cabaret in 2013.
But has his dancing improved since his first ever audition in 2001?
