It wouldn’t be Christmas without a seasonal special of Strictly Come Dancing and this year the BBC have lined up a whole host of exciting celebrities. There will be six stars taking to the Strictly ballroom floor for a festive dance, including The Saturdays’ singer Rochelle Humes, DJ Sara Cox and 1980s popstar Matt Goss. Who is your favourite to win?

After stuffing our faces with turkey, there’s no better way to spend Christmas Day than sitting down to watch the Strictly Come Dancing festive spectacular.

This year they’ve got another bunch of willing celebrity participants, including new mum and Saturdays' singer Rochelle Humes.

There’s no word yet as to whether her husband’s JLS bandmate JB Gill will give her any helpful hints after winning the Christmas special last year, but she certainly seems like the strongest contender.

Battling it out against the 24-year-old popstar will be radio DJ Sara Cox, Matt Goss – the lead singer of 1980s pop group Bros, and EastEnders star Ricky Norwood.

Also confirmed are singer and West End star Elaine Page and comedian Rufus Hound.

All six are supposedly massive fans of Strictly Come Dancing and can’t wait to don the sparkly costumes and strut their way across the stage.

But Rufus and Rochelle might have the edge on their fellow celebrity competitors, as the pair of them have had some previous TV dancing experience, with actual Strictly professional dancers no less.

Rufus took part in Let’s Dance For Comic Relief with Flavia Cacace in 2010, and that same year Rochelle shook her stuff with Ian Waite for Strictly Come Dancing For Children In Need.

In any case it looks like it’s going to be another Strictly ratings success! We can’t wait for Christmas Day!
