Joining him are 2017 alumni Debbie McGee, 61, and former Emmerdale actress Gemma Atkinson, 35, who both made it to the final two years ago but never won the crown.

Good Morning Britain star Richard Arnold, 50, is also making another bid for the top spot, as well as Holby City actress, Chizzy Akudolu, 46.

Completing the festive line up is last year’s finalist Joe Sugg, 28, but who will win the coveted Silver Star Trophy?
