Kent dancer James Jordan was tonight unveiled as one of the star's of this year's Celebrity Big Brother.
Gillingham-born James, who announced last month that he wouldn't be returning to Strictly this year, was the second celebrity to enter the house tonight, following White Dee from Benefits Street.
Other guest unveiled tonight include boxing promoter Kellie Maloney and former boxer Audley Harrison.
James has danced with celebrities including Denise van Outen, who was runner-up in 2012, finalist Pamela Stephenson and Alex Jones.
Last year he partnered TV and radio presenter Vanessa Feltz but they went out in the second round.
James was a pupil at St John Fisher School in Chatham and still visits the area regularly to see his family who live on St Mary’s Island, including father Allan.
He now lives with his wife, fellow Strictly star Ola, near Maidstone.
There is another Kent connection on this year's show after Kelly Brook's Gladiator partner David McIntosh was unveiled as another housemate.
