In an attempt to lure viewers away from BBC One Saturday night extravagansa Strictly Come Dancing ITV is to air its own take on the celebrity dance floor with Stepping Out.
The entertainment show will see six celebrities and their real life partners put their relationships to the dancing test.
I’m beyond excited to be hosting Stepping Out, I love dancing and I’m a nosey parker. I can’t wait to see how the couples are going to cope trying to learn the cha cha or pirouette whilst doing the school run or cleaning. – Davina McCall
The line up of famous faces for the 2013 series, as seen in our gallery below, are Brian McFadden & wife Vogue Williams, Denise Welch & husband Lincoln Townley, Oritsé Williams & girlfriend A.J Azari, Laurence Llewelyn Bowen & wife Jackie Llewelyn Bowen, Carl Froch & girlfriend Rachael Cordingley and finally Glynis Barber & husband Michael Brandon.
Viewers will see their journey from home to dance-floor as each couple tries to master a new dance genre each week.
We’re really pleased to have Davina on board as host joining our lively mixture of couples. Davina’s enthusiasm and energy will be a great asset for Stepping Out and perfect for bringing out the best in our celebrities and their real life partners. – Kate Maddigan, ITV’s Entertainment Commissioning Editor
Stepping Out is an ITV Studios production for ITV.
Well it might stand a chance of success, mainly due to the fact it doesn’t have Christine Bleakley hosting it. – TV Critic Queenie
