AMMANFORD presenter Alex Jones will once again be hosting Let's Dance for Comic Relief along with Steve Jones.

The dancing extravaganza kick offs on BBC1 on February 16 and will span four weeks, leading to the grand final on March 9.

Each week, viewers at home will get the chance to vote for their favourite act who will gain a place in the final.

This year dancing celebrities include funnyman Tim Vine, boxer Ricky Hatton, ventriloquist Nina Conti and comic John Culshaw.

Alex (right) said: "I'm ridiculously excited to be back on Let's Dance.

"We have some of our best comedians as panellists, and an unbelievable line up of brave celebrities who are all prepared to don their dancing shoes to raise lots of money for this year's Red Nose Day.

"Earlier this year Steve and I went out to Malawi to visit a number of projects funded by Comic Relief, and we can't wait to get stuck in, knowing that the money raised this Red Nose Day will go towards helping families in Africa and in the UK that desperately need it."
