EastEnder Davood Ghadami will take on singer Mollie King in the new season of Strictly Come Dancing.

The actor, who has played Kush Kazemi in the soap since 2014, is the second celebrity to join the line-up for the dancing competition.

He said: “Having the opportunity to take part in this year’s Strictly is such an honour.

“It’s going to be exciting, challenging and terrifying all at once and I am so looking forward to stepping out of my comfort zone and learning to dance. See you under the glitterball!”

Other EastEnders stars to take to the Strictly dancefloor in past years include Jake Wood, Kellie Bright and Tameka Empson.

In 2010 the soap’s Kara Tointon lifted the glitterball trophy as champion.
