Greg Rutherford joins 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Team GB long jumper Greg Rutherford joins the lineup for BBC dance show Strictly Come Dancing.

Team GB Olympic long jumper Greg Rutherford has joined the lineup of BBC dance show Strictly Come Dancing.

The 29-year-old, who earned a bronze medal last week in Rio de Janeiro, will compete with the likes of Louise Redknapp, Judge Rinder and Birds of a Feather actress Lesley Joseph when the popular series returns next month.

Norwich City chairman and former shadow-chancellor Ed Balls, as well as Team GB gymnast Claudia Fragapane, are also in the lineup.

"I love being challenged and taking to the Strictly ballroom is like nothing I have ever done before," said Rutherford. "Doing this is definitely a long jump from my day job for sure."

Other contestants in the lineup include Will Young, Daisy Lowe and Anastacia.
