Free tickets for the Red Carpet event on the 27th of August and the Premiere show recording on the 31st are up for grabs if anyone wants to apply with the thousands of others who apply every year

Now ticket lotteries are up (rest of the live shows will be up next week) they will start releasing names in the next week or two (usually at the start of August)
I can’t think of anyone who I’d be desperate to see do it, they had a decent line up last year so I’ll trust them.

I imagine they’ll go for one or two former footballers to cash in on the World Cup fever, like they did in 2012 after the London Olympics.
Jane won’t do the show this year, her career doesn’t need the boost.

She is the current Queen of Channel 5, a BAFTA winner and had an album recently in the top 10.

We will get an Eastenders star, someone that has just left Corrie or Hollyoaks, a sports star, some form of weather girl or Loose Women. Throw in a chef, some faded popstars and we have a line up.
Faye being able to do pop dance routines already doesn’t necessarily give her an advantage when it comes to doing the foxtrot or the tango or anything like that, it just means she has rhythm and can pick things up. The public want 15 people who have never danced and people who can make a fool of themselves but then will be bored by week three when everyone is terrible. God knows why this has to be a “thing” every year.
We had Heather Morris from "Glee" and literally a former backup dancer for Beyoncé on Dancing with the Stars. She ended up in 8th place. Agreeing with everyone else. It doesn't matter in the long run.

I do think there is something to be said for leveling the playing field a little bit though. For example, as you may know, Nicole Scherzinger won series 10 of Dancing With The Stars, which saw the (at the time) 32-year-old performer who minored in dance in university competing against Buzz Aldrin, an (at the time) 80-year-old former astronaut. I mean, come on.
