Strictly Come Dancing stars hide behind Bruce masks
'Strictly Come Dancing's line up was revealed yesterday (08.09.12).
Contestants for the tenth series of the show arrived for their first day of rehearsals at London's Royal Academy of Dance and despite their best efforts to disguise themselves with masks of host Bruce Forsyth, many could easily be made out.
Contestants include Texan model Jerry Hall, the former wife of The Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger, former England cricket captain Michael Vaughan, actress Dani Harmer, Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh and TV host Denise Van Outen.
The show will also include Olympians in the form of medal winning cyclist Victoria Pendleton and gymnast Louis Smith.
Former 'This Morning' host Fern Britton will dance as will Westlife singer Nicky Byrne and TV star Richard Arnold.
Representing the soaps will be ex-'Emmerdale' actress Lisa Riley, and former 'EastEnders' star Sid Owen.
The oldest contestant on the show will be 74-year-old TV star Johnny Ball, who's daughter Zoe presents spin off show 'Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two'.
While he may be more mature, the former 'Johnny Ball Reveals All' presenter reportedly has some killer moves on the dancefloor.
A source recently said: ''Johnny might be 74 but he's got some puff. He was looked after himself over the years and is really game.
''It would be foolish to write him off as some old duffer just there for laughs. He's been showing off some moves in training that would put much younger celebs to shame.''
A mystery 14th contestant also arrived, wearing a Team GB top with the hood drawn up, although they are not thought to be an Olympian.
At the dance centre the contestants were introduced to their professional dancing partners and started learning a group routine for the launch show on September 15.09-09-2012
