“As a fan of Strictly for years, I have always imagined myself on the show, but the timing has not been right… until now!”
The singer has taken ballet lessons and he was nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award in the revival of Cabaret the musical.
He joins former shadow chancellor Ed Balls who was announced for the series yesterday.
Will Young will take to the outdoor stage on Saturday 27 August 2016, the second evening of Somerset Rocks, the three-night music event being held in Taunton’s Vivary Park during the August bank holiday weekend (26 – 28 August 2016).
