Ashley Roberts will perform the Viennese Waltz to "Perfect" for her first "Strictly Come Dancing" routine.

The songs and dances for the first episode of the BBC ballroom competition have been revealed, and it's been confirmed the former Pussycat Dolls singer and her pro partner Pasha Kovalev will take on Ed Sheeran and Beyonce's huge hit.

Meanwhile, Susannah Constantine and Anton du Beke will be taking to the dance floor with a Samba set to Carmden Miranda's Tico Tico, with cricketer Graeme Swann and Oti Mabuse performing the same style to Soul Limbo by Booker T and The M.G."s.

Four couples will be kicking their "Strictly" journey off with the Cha Cha Cha, as celebrities Charles Venn, Dr. Ranj Singh, Faye Tozer and Kate Silverton step up.

The "Top Cat" theme will get an airing, with Danny John-Jules and his partner Amy Dowden trying their hand at the Foxtrot, while Seann Walsh and Katya Jones will be dancing the Tango to "Sexyback" by Justin Timberlake.
