Holby City star Joe McFadden is the sixth contestant to be revealed as a contestant in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.

The Scottish actor has previously appeared in the West End in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and his other television programmes include Casualty,  Heartbeat, Take The High Road, The Crow Road, and Sex, Chips & Rock 'n' Roll.

Joe plays Raf or Raffaello di Luca in Holby City and will be joining The Saturdays' Mollie King, Rev Richard Coles, who was formerly a member of The Communards, TV presenter Ruth Langsford, and soap actors Gemma Atkinson and Davood Ghadami.

He said that: "Strictly is one of the biggest, most entertaining shows on TV, and being asked to be part of it is a once in a lifetime opportunity that I'm thrilled and terrified about in equal measures."
