Melvin Odoom joins Strictly Come Dancing

KISS FM UK’s Melvin Odoom, part of Rickie, Melvin And Charlie at breakfast, has been confirmed as a celebrity contestant for the brand new series of Strictly Come Dancing on BBC One.

Melvin confirmed he will be taking part in the television show on-air this morning.

“I’m honoured to be part of Strictly 2016! I’m looking forward to learning some new moves of course….but basically it’s the sequins that clinched it for me. I need sparkle in my life and there’s nothing more sparkly that Strictly. I just hope that my dance partner isn’t too tall!” said Melvin.

As well as radio work, Melvin is the former presenter of The Xtra Factor on ITV2 alongside Rochelle Humes, and has hosted shows for 4Music, T4, Kiss TV, Box TV and MTV. He’s also been on BBC Three’s Sweat The Small Stuff, ITV’s Bang On The Money on Saturday nights, and hosted backstage at the Brit Awards with Laura Whitmore.

Melvin joins Ed Balls, Will Young, Laura Whitmore and Ore Oduba who have already been announced as contestants for the new series which returns in September 2016.
