Jay McGuiness from The Wanted joins 'Strictly Come Dancing'
Singer Jay McGuiness, formerly of The Wanted fame, has been confirmed as a contestant on this year's run of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The heartthrob will join the show along with previously announced contestants Peter Andre, Jeremy Vine, chef Ainsley Harriott, Kellie Bright, Georgia May Foote, Katie Derham and Carol Kirkwood.
Speaking about taking part in the show, McGuiness explained that dancing has never really been something he's had to pay much attention to: “In the group we were about as coordinated as a sack of frogs, so they gave up and made us stand in different positions and walk around a bit, and we struggled with that.”
He opened up about his biggest fear surrounding his involvement in the dance contest, adding: “That I completely blank. I don’t think I’ve ever seen someone just stand there for the entire duration of the song, and I really don’t want to be the first.”
