City MP Iain Stewart has been announced as a contestant in this year’s Celebrity JustDance.
The politician will begin rehearsals with dance partner Leah Rolfe later this week.
Alongside ten other well-known faces from across Milton Keynes, Mr Stewart will perform at a charity event in November to raise money for Keech Hospice.
He said: “I am delighted to be taking part.
“It is going to be great fun and all for a good cause.”
But with just 12 weeks to go until the big night, the MK South MP is sure to be put through his paces as he sets his sights on the glitterball trophy.
He will be taught to dance the samba and tango by professional dancer Leah who was a semi-finalist on Britain’s Got Talent.
Accursio Romeo, organiser of Celebrity JustDance, said: “It’s great for the competition that Iain Stewart has joined us. He will have a lot of supporters and a big following.
“When he confirmed he would be a contestant he said he was very afraid for what he was letting himself in for - but he knows it is all for a great cause .”
