EastEnders bad boy Jake Wood is preparing to strut his stuff on the Strictly Come Dancing dance floor.
Wood plays womaniser Max Branning in the BBC soap opera, but away from Albert Square he is a father-of-two who enjoys rock-climbing, running, cycling and boxing.
He said: "I'm doing it for all the dads out there and you never know, there's always a chance of being the first Walford resident to take home the glitter ball... Bring it on!"
He will be up against Towie star Mark Wright, singers Simon Webbe and Frankie Bridge and former rugby player Thom Evans among others.
Judy Murray has confirmed she will compete as a contestant on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
The mother of former Wimbledon champion Andy Murray joins Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays on the show, which starts in the Autumn.
"I'm a huge Strictly Come Dancing fan but a total armchair dancer," the 54-year-old said.
"It's going to be a big challenge for me and for whoever has to dance with me but I absolutely can't wait to get started."

Claudia Winkleman will join Tess Daly as the duo are confirmed as the new regular hosts of Strictly Come Dancing, following the departure of Sir Bruce Forsyth.
The announcement by the BBC ends weeks of speculation prompted by Sir Bruce's decision to step down from the show after a decade.
Daly and Winkleman were strongly fancied to land the permanent slot together after impressing viewers with their on-screen chemistry in the weekly results show and during Sir Bruce's occasional absences.
The pair will take over in the autumn when the series returns, with Daly switching to Sir Bruce's usual position introducing each of the dances and probing the judges for their reactions.

Comedian Rufus Hound has won his second television dance contest after triumphing in the Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special.
He beat the likes of DJ Sara Cox and Saturdays singer Rochelle Hulmes to lift this year's trophy for his tango with partner Flavia Cacace. Hound previously won the series Let's Dance For Sport Relief in 2010.
Elaine Paige topped the voting with the judging panel in the one-off festive Strictly show for her cha cha cha with Pasha Kovalev to Jingle Bells.
But when it went to the audience vote, Hound stepped out in front for his performance to Never Do A Tango With An Eskimo.
Surprised winner Hound said: "It's surreal in the extreme. We didn't really set out to win, the fact that it's happened I don't know what it means. I think if I had more of a taste for the ballroom, they'd be serving it in a burger!"
