Strictly Come Dancing lineup announced

The lineup for this year's Strictly Come Dancing has been announced and the star name on the bill is former Wimbledon champion Martina Hingis.

The 29-year-old won five grand slam titles in her career but was banned for two years back in 2008 by the International Tennis Federation after testing positive for cocaine in 2007.

The former tennis champion will be joined by ex-jockey Richard Dunwoody, retired boxer Joe Calzaghe, Olympic long jumper Jade Johnson and ex-cricketer Phil Tufnell.

Joining the sporty types in the celebrity lineup are former Oxo advert mother Lynda Bellingham as well as a number of former soap stars including Natalie Cassidy and Ricky Groves from EastEnders, Coronation Street's Craig Kelly, Ali Bastian and Ricky Whittle from Hollyoaks and Footballers' Wives stars Laila Rouass and Zoe Lucker.

The mammoth cast of Strictly Come Dancing contestants is completed by BBC Breakfast presenter Chris Hollins, police officer-turned-Crimewatch host Rav Wilding and Rolling Stone Ronnie Wood's estranged wife Jo.
