ACTOR Will Mellor has been showing off his best dance moves after the news was announced that he’s signed up for Strictly Come Dancing.
The 46-year-old threw his hands in the air and put the other on his hip as he struck a playful pose while leaving BBC Breakfast in Manchester today.
Clearly excited about his Strictly Come Dancing journey, Will got his groove on in his jeans and denim top while boogying.
Cheeky chappy Will, who’s best known for his roles in Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps and Coronation Street, is the first star to be announced for the series, alongside Kym Marsh.
He said: “I’m honestly so chuffed to be taking part in Strictly Come Dancing this year!
“Not going to lie, it’s totally out of my comfort zone and I know it will be a huge challenge but that’s what life is all about.
“This is also my Mum’s favourite show and she’s had a really tough few years so I’m doing this is for her as well. Bring it on!”
Will also added that he’s “terrified and frightened” but said he’s doing it to step out of his comfort zone and added that everyone will be “in for a ride.”
Will lives with his wife Michelle McSween and their kids Renee, 13, and Jayden, 17.
Meanwhile Kym is excited to throw herself into learning the different styles of dance.
And the Waterloo Road star has vowed to pass on her skills to husband Scott.
She said: “I’ve considered doing Strictly for years but the timings never worked out. I’m so delighted that this year they have!
“I’m a huge fan of the show and can’t believe I’m going to go from watching at home in my pyjamas to actually dancing in front of the judges in a glittery dress, it’s unreal!”
The official Strictly account welcomed both stars to the show, prompting fans to excitedly declare: “It’s back.”
