Last week Dr Ranj Singh became the sixth celebrity to leave this year’s series.

The ‘This Morning’ medic left the BBC ballroom competition during Sunday’s results show after facing ‘Casualty’ actor Charles Venn in the dance-off.

After the result was announced, Dr Ranj told host Tess Daly: “I can’t express how much this has meant to me. I have made friends for life. I’ve done something that I only could have dreamed of. I just want to say to anyone who ever dreams of this you can, you really can, ’cause I’m here and I’ve done it.”

Meanwhile, six ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ ghosts of Christmas past have been confirmed to be hitting the floor for this year’s festive special.

Airing on Christmas Day, former champion Caroline Flack will be strapping on her dancing shoes once again for the special episode, where she’ll be joined by Aston Merrygold and Anita Rani.

Also competing for the Silver Star trophy in this year’s Christmas special, which will have the theme of “fairy tales and making dreams come true, will be ‘EastEnders’ actor Jake Wood, former cricketer Michael Vaughan and Ann Widdecombe.
