Strictly Come Dancing 2011: the sequinned contestants are revealed

6 September 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Edwina Currie, Jason Donovan, Nancy Dell'Olio, Rory Bremner, Lulu, Robbie Savage and Holly Valance all taking to the floor

With seven years of practice, the BBC has its Strictly Come Dancing routine off pat: a few steps from a soap actor, a twirl or two from a pop star, some fancy footwork from a sportsman and a dramatic entrance from the political clown.

And this year's Strictly lineup, revealed on Tuesday, does not put a foot wrong. Edwina Currie takes the former Tory battleaxe role, filled last year by Ann Widdecombe.

Fellow contestants for the BBC1 show, which starts on Saturday, include Jason Donovan, Lulu and Rory Bremner.

Also appearing will be sportsmen Robbie Savage and Audley Harrison, plus lawyer and sequin-lover Nancy Dell'Olio, who came to public attention as the former partner of Sven-Göran Eriksson.

Russell Grant will line up too, becoming Strictly's first ever dancing astrologer. Viewers »

Britain's Red Nose Day for Comic Relief Brought To You By the Letters "G" "A" and "Y"

21 March 2011 9:22 AM, PDT | The Backlot | See recent The Backlot news »

What is about Britain's Comic Relief telethon "Red Nose Day" that draws in so much talent?

Below you can see out comic, actor, author and generally brilliant Stephen Fry explain exactly what's it's been like being part of the Red Nose Day effort for the past 20 years. He explains it better than I ever could.

Out star Graham Norton hosted the night with Davina, and had considerably more fun than most American telethons. Plus, he had a sense of history with previous years, as evidenced here.

 

He also got various prim and proper celebrities to tell their most embarrassing moments, before embarrassing them even more using his Big Red Button.

 

Doctor Who isn't specifically gay (though Matt Smith does play one in a movie), but I've always felt it had a certain campy sensibility. And in this clip he shows us just how distracted straight boys are by girls in short skirts. »
