James Argent, Marnie Simpson and Tom Malone sign up for The Real Dirty Dancing

The full celebrity line-up for E4's new dance reality show The Real Dirty Dancing has been revealed.

Fans are in for the time of their life as a slew of big stars will take on challenges and dance routines based on iconic scenes from the classic 1987 film.

Taking on the moves made famous by Jennifer Gray’s character Baby are presenter Anthea Turner, reality TV star Marnie Simpson, social media star and TV personality Saffron Barker, Hollyoaks actress Chelsee Healey and comedian and actor Verona Rose.

Attempting to channel their inner Johnny, a character made famous by Patrick Swayze, will be Blue’s Lee Ryan, TOWIE’s James Argent, comedian Darren Harriott, former Goggleboxer Tom Malone Jr and celebrity quizzer Bobby Seagull.

Fans will see the celebrities attempt to learn and perform routines inspired by iconic moments from the movie, including the famous Hungry Eyes dance to the memorable Mambo dance.

The top two celebs will ultimately attempt to take on the gravity defying lift made famous at the end of the movie for the season finale, with the remaining six celebrities acting as backing dancers.

Inspired by the Australian series of the same name, the nostalgia packed dance experience is co-hosted by Dirty Dancing superfan, Keith Lemon and Heart FM showbiz host and Pussycat Doll, Ashley Roberts.

Celebs will be choreographed and trained across eight episodes by creative director of Dreamboys, Jordan Darrell.

The famous faces will move into a stunning Lakeside location reminiscent of the original Kellermans resort form the movie.

In snaps released before the show’s launch, Anthea Turner was seen dressed all in white like Baby, as her and partner Arg tried to recreate the iconic lift in the water.

Arg then dipped himself under as Anthea couldn’t stop laughing at their predicament.

YouTube star Saffron was also seen having a go at the water lift, but viewers will have to tune in to see who wins the show.

Speaking about his excitement at hosting the show, Dirty Dancing super fan Keith said: “Dirty Dancing is such a good film

“Of course, I’ve been Baby myself twice now. Once for Let’s Dance For Comic Relief and once when we did it on The Keith & Paddy Picture Show.

“So I was chuffed to be asked to host this show. And to be hosting with my mate Ashely, it’s going to be so fun.”

Ashley added: “I love Dirty Dancing, the film literally had a huge impact on my life, and I couldn’t be more excited to be involved in this series.”
