A host of past contestants will be digging their dancing shoes out of the wardrobe for the festive bonanza, with three champions and a runner-up returning to the dancefloor.

2013′s winner Abbey Clancy, 2011′s champion Harry Judd and 2008′s dancing King Tom Chambers will all be rocking around the Strictly trophy, along with former Royal Marine Medic and winner of The People’s Strictly for Comic Relief 2015 Cassidy Little.

2008′s third place dancer Lisa Snowdon will also be hoping to melt Craig Revel Horwood’s icicle heart (we wouldn’t have you any other way, Craig), with 2014 favourite Alison Hammond completing this year’s star-studded line-up.

They will be paired with the following professional dancers:

  • Abbey Clancy and Brendan Cole

  • Harry Judd and Jo Clifton

  • Lisa Snowdon and Pasha Kovalev

The sparkling celebrities will be hoping to enchant the audience with routines based around everything from Alice in Wonderland to Jack Frost and Scrooge, aiming to get some tinsel-tastic TENS from the judges and grab that Silver Star for the top of their tree.

Legendary singer Dame Shirley Bassey will be performing, with Sir Bruce Forsyth returning to present with Tess Daly.

The Christmas Special airs on Christmas Day - we can’t WAIT!
