Caroline Flack, Ann Widdecombe, and Anita Rani are among the stars who have been confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing's Christmas special.

Six of the most-loved contestants from the previous series of the Latin and ballroom show are to return to the programme for an all-star BBC One festive special on Christmas Day (25.12.18), and the likes of Aston Merrygold, Jake Wood and Michael Vaughan will also be gracing the dance floor once again.

"Love Island" presenter Caroline, 38, won the series in 2014 and claims her Glitterball Trophy is still proudly on display on her home, and that she can't wait to return.

She said: "I can't quite believe it's been four years since I had the best time of my life, dancing with Pasha on the "Strictly" dance floor.

"My Glitterball still has pride of place in my living room!

"It always felt like a family at the SCD studios, so how could I say no to performing one last time on this year's Christmas special? It'll be the best present I could imagine."

Former Conservative politician Ann, 71, will also make her "Strictly" comeback, and while she's fearful of being "cajoled and coaxed" she is still looking forward to appearing on the show once again.

She said: "I am very much looking forward to returning to "Strictly", where I shall once again be pushed, pulled, cajoled and coaxed around the dance floor in all manner of ways by my poor dance partner.

"Who knows, they might even fire me out of a canon."

Presenter Anita starred in series 13 and is particularly looking forward to the show's signature garish outfits.

She said: "I can't contain my excitement about dancing again and getting sparkly for "Strictly", stepping back inside the glitter ball of glam!"
