Strictly Come Dancing’s festive special has signed up Larry Lamb, Rosie Ramsey, Rickie Haywood-Williams and former Coronation Street star Alexandra Mardell to compete in the ballroom this year.

TV actor Lamb will be paired with professional dancer Nadiya Bychkova for this festive episode of the BBC competition show, where he’ll compete against more celebrities to be announced in due course.

Lamb is well known for playing Gavin’s affable dad Mick Shipman in BBC One comedy Gavin & Stacey and has also terrorised the Vic as evil barman Archie Mitchell in EastEnders.

Other notable acting credits include playing an infamous real-life robber in The Hatton Garden Job, in addition to appearing in New Tricks. He competed in I’m a Celebrity in 2016 and regularly contributes films to The One Show.

Speaking about his ballroom debut, Lamb said: “Christmas has come early! I can’t wait to get on the dance floor and learn a brand new skill ready for all those festive parties. I am excited yet incredibly nervous but I know Nadiya will look after me, and I look forward to adding a bit of extra sparkle to Christmas day.”

Alexandra will also don sequins in a bid for the Christmas glitterball, and will be paired with professional Kai Widdrington.

Speaking of her involvement in the special, she said: “I’ve grown up with Strictly Come Dancing, and my Mum always said she’d love to see me on the show so this really is the best Christmas present I could give her. I can’t wait to get into the training room and see what festive moves I can bring to the table!”

“Fab-yule-lous presenter and podcaster” Rosie was announced as the first casting yesterday (November 30) – three years on from her husband Chris Ramsey’s stint on the flagship show.

Radio 1 DJ Rickie was then confirmed as the second contestant. He said: “I have watched Strictly over the years and always said I’d be too scared to do it. But here I am ready to go for it, sequins n’ all.”

Rosie will be paired with professional dancer Neil Jones, while Rickie will dance with Luba Mushtuk. Three more contestants are still to be announced.

Rosie’s involvement comes after apparently growing furious over Chris’s Strictly weight loss back in 2019.

“It’s no secret that she’s a little bit angry I’ve lost so much weight while doing work,” the comedian previously revealed. “It’s not like I’ve had to go into a gym, she’s like, ‘for f**k’s sake!

“Generally, because I’ve got a fast metabolism I can eat what I want and not be huge, so she’s very used to being annoyed at how I look which gives me endless joy.”
