Jones, who rose to fame on the 2020 series of ITV2 dating show Love Island, previously revealed she has thyroid cancer and has had a tumour removed.

Banjo said: “I’m so excited to be working with a new brilliant, bold and brave line-up of celebrities for Strictly The Real Full Monty.

“It’s going to be our biggest musical dance extravaganza yet and we are determined to get the message out there that early cancer checks in intimate areas save lives. So don’t forget to check your bits and baubles this Christmas!”

“There will also be star guest performances and stunning solos so hold on to your mirror balls – this is strictly the most ambitious Full Monty yet!”
