LAURA WHITMORE- so it's no surprise to see her pop up in the confirmed list. Olympics fever might not be sweeping the nation in quite the same way as it did in 2012, but it's still huge - so it's no surprise that the BBC snapped up Ore for host (and KISS FM DJ) Melvin Odoom has signed up to shake his booty on the dancefloor.
He's obviously got popstar experience and has acted on stage and TV: all experience that could serve him very well indeed. Laura's revealed that she had to turn down the show before and was worried she'd never get a second chance, so here's hoping she throws herself into it. With Caroline already offering to give him some pointers, he might surprise us all with what he's capable of (let's be honest, his previous efforts at dancing have been for comedic effect...)6.
Paired with pro dancer Emma Slater, Jennings has delivered great performances on the show and has gained the attention of many lady viewers as well.
"At the moment, I am the only single girl in the cast, so I get put with the hot, single guy," she laughed. Burgess dished about a recent conversation she had with the 30-year-old dancer when she was looking to get another outlook on why she's still single. And I think she's going to have to be a very strong woman. "It doesn't make me envious in any way, and it doesn't make me wish it was right now," she said.
"I was like, 'Babe, I have no game,'" Burgess told us. He likes strong women -- strong, passionate, driven and intelligent," she continued.

She pointed out that while there are some contestants that are coming on the show with absolutely no dance experience, there are gymnasts with ballet training and pop stars with jazz training participating. and she loves it, except for the actual dating part!
" She doesn't dwell on it too much though, saying that she's a pretty good judge of character and quick to tell if someone is dating her for the wrong reasons. And she got some great dating advice from Val Chmerkovskiy.
