Boxer Ricky Hatton and impressionist John Culshaw are among the 15 celebrities who will take to the floor for the latest series of Let’s Dance for Comic Relief.

The pair will join a line-up which also includes comedienne Nina Conti and stand-up comic Tim Vine when the series kicks off on BBC One on February 16.

This year’s participants, who will once again recreate famous dance routines from the worlds of music and film, will peform for a panel of judges who will include Jo Brand and Frank Skinner.

Co-host Steve Jones said: “It’s still the most fun I have on TV so I am ecstatic Let’s Dance is back with a host of famous faces along with famous arms, necks, legs and fingers all attempting to dance for our viewing pleasure.”

Alex Jones, who presents the show with Steve, added that she was “ridiculously excited” about its return.

“We have some of our best comedians as panellists, and an unbelievable line-up of brave celebrities who are all prepared to don their dancing shoes to raise lots of money for this year’s Red Nose Day,” she said.

The 2012 series Let’s Dance for Sport Relief was won by funnyman Rowland Rivron with his recreation of Christopher Walken’s tap-dancing routine from Fatboy Slim’s Weapon Of Choice video.
