Made in Chelsea's Jamie Laing is back in the celebrity line-up for this year's Strictly Come Dancing, having been forced to pull out of the BBC One show in 2019 due to injury.
Laing was replaced after last year's launch show by Emmerdale's Kelvin Fletcher, who then went on to win the series with professional dance partner Oti Mabuse.
