Strictly Come Dancing has added another celebrity to the 2023 constant list for the upcoming series. 

As Casualty star Nigel Harman is set to take to the dance floor going against fellow soap stars Bobby Brazier and Adam Thomas. 

The 49-year-old actor is best known for playing the role of Dennis Rickman in EastEnders, the late husband of Sharon Watts (Letitia Dean) on the BBC soap from 2003-2005. 

In recent years, Harman returned to the BBC on Casualty playing the role of clinical lead doctor Max Cristie.

Discussing joining Strictly, the actor said: "I'm amazed, excited, and terrified to be doing Strictly. As an armchair fan of the show, I have watched in awe as people have twirled and gyrated across the screen. And now it's my turn... gulp!"

Alongside his time on screen, Harman has done work on stage, performing in Guys and Dolls on London's West End and Sherk the Musical, which he later directed for the UK tour.
