Strictly Come Dancing has announced their sixth contestant and we are thrilled to see BBC Breakfast’s Mike Bushell will be strutting his stuff on the dancefloor this September.

Mike joins footballer David James, comedian Chris Ramsey, actress Emma Barton, YouTuber Saffron Barker and actress Catherine Tyldesley.

The presenter said he is ready for a new challenge, “I am so excited to be joining this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. I’ve heard so many wonderful things from colleagues over the years so thrilled I’m now getting the chance.

“I know I will completely throw myself into the whole experience and I’m sure I will love it from start to finish,” said Mike.

The BBC Breakfast host added, “I may have tried and profiled over 500 sports over the years in my Saturday morning BBC Breakfast slot but I think the Strictly challenge could be the greatest. Bring on the glitter.”

Mike has profiled some of the biggest sporting events in recent years including the Commonwealth Games, Asian Games, Football World Cups, the Olympics and the Paralympics.

We certainly can’t wait to see him tackle the tango and cha cha cha on Strictly this September.
