The BBC have just released the first trailer for this year's Strictly Come Dancing, so we get our first glimpse of Daniel O'Donnell.

The short sting features all the contestants and it is the start of the build up to the show which hits our screns on September 5.

Speaking to us last week about his appearance on the show, the Donegal man couldn't wait to get started.

“I’m absolutely thrilled to be asked to do the show,” he told us.

“When the email came in with the offer I didn’t have to think twice about it. As luck would have it, this is the only year that I could do Strictly because I’m on a break for touring.

“Every other year when the show is on I have a residency for several weeks in a theatre in Branson, Missouri. But I’ve always loved Strictly and I never miss the final stages of the show.”

Although it will take him out of his comfort zone, Daniel says he’s ready for the challenge.

“I won’t be at all self-conscious and I intend to have a lot of fun on the show. When opportunities like this come along it’s important to embrace them and run with them."

Sunday World columnist Daniel added: “The BBC could have the pick of all kinds of people, so I'm very flattered that they’ve chosen me among this year’s contestants.”

He revealed he is a huge fan of the show and has been asked to take part in the Christmas special several times, but has always been too busy touring.
