BBC unveils Let's Dance comedians

Katy Brand, Jenny Éclair and Shappi Khorsandi are to take to the dancefloor in the latest BBC dancing show.

The trio joining fellow comic Rufus Hound and Birds Of A Feather duo Linda Robson and Lesley Joseph for the Sport Relief series Let's Dance.

Last years’ programmes famously featured Robert Webb recreating Flashdance, wearing a leotard.

Comic actress Susie Blake, former England footballers Peter Shilton and Rodney Marsh, and snooker players Willie Thorne and Dennis Taylor complete the line-up of names announced so far.

Claudia Winkleman and Steve Jones will host the four shows, which start on February 20 on BBC One.

Judges will include Jack Dee and Frank Skinner.

Last week, Skinner revealed that he would be presenting A Question Of Sport Relief during the telethon, featuring Zara Phillips as one of the contestants.

The schedules have been full of dance shows recently, with BBC One’s Strictly Come Dancing and So You Think You Can Dance; BBC Three’s Move Like Michael Jackson and the forthcoming Dancing On Wheels for wheelchair dancers; ITV1’s Dancing On Ice and Sky One’s Got To Dance and the forthcoming Pineapple Dance Studios.
