Singers Rachel Stevens and Heather Small are among the stars who will take part in the new series of BBC One hit Strictly Come Dancing.

Former EastEnders Gillian Taylforth, Jessie Wallace and Phil Daniels will also compete for the trophy.

The One Show host Christine Bleakley and GMTV presenter Andrew Castle are among the 16 contestants.

The new series kicks off on Saturday 20 September, with Bruce Forsyth and Tess Daly returning as presenters.

Actress Cheri Lunghi, former Rising Damp star Don Warrington and model Jodie Kidd are among the famous names taking part, along with television chef Gary Rhodes.

TV presenter Lisa Snowdon and Holby City actor Tom Chambers will also do battle against a clutch of sport stars - who have performed well in previous series of the show.

Olympic swimmer Mark Foster and rugby player Austin Healey are hoping to emulate past champions Darren Gough and Mark Ramprakash.

Former ITV News political editor John Sergeant, 64, will hope to survive the early rounds of the tough competition.

The sixth series will feature two more celebrity and professional dance couples than previous years, and will enjoy a longer run.

Last year's show was won by singer Alesha Dixon along with her partner Matthew Cutler, who this year will team up with Christine Bleakley.

The show's regular professionals will be making a comeback, including Camilla Dallerup and Darren Bennett, who triumphed in a previous season with actress Jill Halfpenny.

Three new professionals - Brian Fortuna, Hayley Holt and Kristina Rihanoff - will join the programme.

Strictly co-host Bruce Forsyth said the victorious celebrity would need "stamina and style" to win the series.

"People often ask me to predict who'll win and I never do, but I've got a sixth sense about the sixth series. The winner will be a manů or a woman!" added the veteran entertainer.

Television chef Gary Rhodes has become the third celebrity to waltz off Strictly Come Dancing.

The judges chose to save swimmer Mark Foster, who was left fighting for survival along with Rhodes in the BBC One show's dance-off.

Rhodes' footwork was described as "flat as a pancake" by the panel, and he picked up only 18 points out of 40 in Saturday's live programme.

Next week's show will witness the exit of a second female competitor.

"Lurching neck"

Presenter Lisa Snowdon and ex-EastEnders actress Jessie Wallace are considered to be in the danger zone after weak opening performances.

Actress Gilian Taylforth became the first woman to be ousted last week, with another former EastEnder, Phil Daniels, the first famous face to fall in week one.

After making his exit, Rhodes, who was partnered by professional Karen Hardy, said: "I would go through it all again - I want that ballroom dance. Maybe we'll have that privately."

Judge Craig Revel Horwood told the chef after his performance that his "hunched back" and "lurching neck" were hindering his progress.

"There are major timing issues and stompy flat footedness that make it laboured," he added.

Strictly stars support Sergeant

Stars of Strictly Come Dancing past and present have lent their support to ex-political journalist John Sergeant after he pulled out of the contest.

GMTV presenter Andrew Castle, who was voted off earlier this series, said the show would be "worse off" without him.

Fellow evictee singer Heather Small said he was "winning with the public", but could never sway the judges.

Sergeant, 64, said he was leaving the show because winning would have been "a joke too far".

He told a press conference he was quitting because there was "no viable 'stop Sergeant' candidate".

"If the joke wears thin, if in fact people begin to take it very seriously, and if people really are getting so wound up that it's very difficult to carry off the joke, then I think it is time to go," he said.

Sergeant and his Russian partner, Kristina Rihanoff, will return on Saturday's show for a "farewell dance".

'Great fun'

Castle told BBC Radio 5 Live that Sergeant had "played a brilliant game from beginning to end".

"He leaves the programme undefeated, his flag flying high, and the programme will be worse off for it because at the end of the day it's an entertainment show and some people have failed in a spectacular fashion to see that," he said.

Small, lead singer of M People, told the BBC's Newsnight that Sergeant "leaves on top" despite the judges' opinion of him.

"I think that he's seen that he can't win with them - even though he's winning with the public and they are very kind to him," she said.

"He's great fun, he's put the show in show business on this show. And I think he's in a win-win position now, because he goes when he wants to go."

The programme's co-host Bruce Forsyth said he felt "very sorry" for Sergeant.

"He was put in the most awkward position, looking at the other dancers and knowing they were better than him," Forsyth said. "He must have felt guilty in a way."

The BBC has said it plans to offer to refund the costs of the phone calls to those people who voted for Sergeant in last week's show.

'A shame'

The corporation has also received more than 2,000 complaints about Sergeant's departure since he announced he was quitting the show.

Strictly judge Arlene Phillips said: "I'm always sad if a contestant leaves of choice, because you are always expecting to let the public vote them in or out - but John is his own person and he has his own reasons for doing this.

Phillips pointed out it was not the first time a weak dancer had been backed by the public over the professionals.

In the last series, GMTV presenter Kate Garraway defied the judges, while ex-EastEnders actor Christopher Parker made it to the final in spite of negative feedback.

Parker said Sergeant's impression people didn't want him in the show was false.

"The judges have campaigned for him to be removed, but the public really want him to go through, I think it's a shame."

Two weeks ago, judges turned on Sergeant, giving his cha-cha-cha, a mere 12 points out of the possible 40.

However, last week the professionals all agreed the broadcaster's timing had improved after he danced the American Smooth.

Altogether Sergeant scored 25 - his personal best after the first nine weeks of the series.
