The latest announcement means that Simon will be taking to the dance floor alongside Mollie King, Davood Ghadami, Ruth Langsford, Gemma Atkinson, Reverend Richard Coles and Joe McFadden.
Tim, 49, was quick to poke fun at Simon, 54, with him saying: “If you don’t win you’re going to lose your place on this show.”
Simon added of when things are going to be kicking off: “Tomorrow we do a little bit of filming and we start dancing in September.”
