Celebrity No. 9: Anthony Ogogo

Professional boxer Anthony Ogogo is the ninth celebrity taking part in Strictly Come Dancing.

Anthony won a Middleweight bronze medal in the for Team GB at London 2012. He also won silver in the 2010 Commonwealth games. He made his professional debut in 2013, and is currently undefeated after eight bouts.

Anthony said: "I've faced a lot of tough opposition in the past, but I've never faced anyone as tough as the Strictly judges before! My Mum is a massive fan of the show so I will be trying my hardest to make her proud."

Boxers haven't had the best record in Strictly to date. Joe Calzaghe came 12th out of 16 participants in 2009, and Audley Harrison was 9th out of 14 in 2011. Anthony will no double be hoping he can instead follow in the footsteps of fellow Olympian Louis Smith.
