CONFIRMED! Des Bishop is taking part in Dancing With The Stars

Comedian Des Bishop has been confirmed to take part in Dancing with the Stars.

He revealed on last night's Late Late Show that he is one of the 11 celebrities set to star in the show this coming January.

The official Dancing With The Stars Instagram account posted a "guess who?" snap of the blurred-out comedian yesterday, asking social media users to guess what star was shown.

"I absolutely cannot wait for January, I can't think of a better way to spend the next few months," said the comedian. 

"At my age, to learn something completely new such as ballroom dancing is an amazing opportunity."

"I mean I wasn't actually a big watcher of the show but when I got asked to do it, I'm totally into it," Des admitted.

"All morning I'm learning my dance moves, I'm obsessed with my dance moves."

Earlier this week, Amanda Byram and Nicky Byrne were confirmed to present the first series. We can't wait for January!
