Danny Mac has given fans their first peek at him covered in sequins, ready for the Strictly dancefloor.

The actor – who played Mark “Dodger” Savage in Hollyoaks from 2011 to 2015 – posted a picture on Instagram which showed off part of his muscled torso in a blue sparkly top.

He captioned the shot: “It’s all kicking off & It’s safe to say i’m jumping in head, chest & sequins first! @bbcstrictly #bbcstrictly.”
