'Strictly' bosses enrol McFly hunk

McFly star Harry Judd and Lulu have signed up to 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

McFly star Harry Judd and Lulu have signed up to 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The musical hunk - who has previously dated Lindsay Lohan - and the 'Shout' hitmaker are the latest names to be added to line-up of the BBC show, joining stars including former 'Neighbours' actress Holly Vallance and TV presenter Alex Jones.

A source told the Sun newspaper: "Lulu is lots of fun and will bring in viewers who remember her from the 60s - but also younger fans who know her from her duet with Take That on 'Relight My Fire'. Harry will tick the heartthrob box."

BBC bosses are said to be delighted with the line-up - which also includes astrologer Russell Grant and boxer and former boxer Audley Harrison.

Harry has previous dance experience having worked on a 'Children in Need Strictly Come Dancing' special where he danced with professional Ola Jordan.

It is not the first time a member of McFly has signed up to a reality TV show - Danny Jones has previously competed on ITV's 'Popstar to Opera Star'.

'Strictly Come Dancing' starts next Saturday.
