Dr. Ranj Singh is the latest celebrity who supposedly joined this year's lineup for Strictly Come Dancing.
It is said that the 39-year-old doctor, who presents the CBeebies Get Well Soon program and is a regular at ITV & # 39; s This Morning, has been chosen by the bosses because he is a "housewife favorite" in daytime television.
Dr. Ranj has already caused quite a stir with his appearances on television, with him being crowned as the most child-friendly presenter earlier this year.

One source told The Sun: "It's the favorite of the housewives on ITV during the day, so it will surely have a lot of support when I go to the dance floor."
Other stars that have joined the series this year are the presenter Scarlett Moffatt, while the diver Tom Daley and Coronation Street actress Catherine Tyldesley are chosen for the series of 2018, as well as Pussycat Dolls singer Ashley Roberts.
The stars in the lineup certainly have big shoes to fill, with actor Joe McFadden lifting the glitter ball trophy with his partner Katya Jones last year after his stop show in Charleston and Viennese Waltz.

Scarlett joked with her fans with an exciting project & # 39; at the end of the year in July.
Speaking to his followers in an Instagram question and answer session last month, he said: "I can not announce anything yet, but let's say the end of the year is going to be a lot of fun."
The brunette, 28, is known for her passion for dancing, and has even trained as a professional salon dancer during her adolescence.
Taking the floor? Scarlett Moffatt is chosen for the 2018 series, which starts at the BBC in September, although she previously trained as a ballroom star (photographed in May).

However, Scarlett is expected to return to her role as hostess in the alien "I AM Celebrity", which starts in November and, therefore, would collide with the BBC series.
Meanwhile, the longtime Olympic diver and fan of Strictly, Tom Daley, who attended the show live in the studio on numerous occasions, has also speculated that he will star in the hit show.
The 24-year-old has certainly focused on his fitness in recent weeks and has shared numerous trainings for his followers on Instagram.
However, he also spoke of his enthusiasm about "his way ahead" as an athlete on the site, with the preparation already under way for the Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
Ashley Roberts, who is known for her impressive dance skills during her time, the Pussycat Dolls group, is also among the names sought.

One source of the show told The Sun: "Ashley was not obvious to bookers, she's sexy and cheeky and she has a little bit about her.
& # 39; She has danced previously, but there is a difference between dancing in a girl's band and making a ballroom.
"It definitely has rhythm, but sometimes having previous experience in the dance can be an obstacle since you have bad habits, but it will definitely look great on the sequins and it's a firm signature."
A spokesman for the BBC said: "We do not comment on speculation, the full alignment will be announced in due time."
