JLS star JB Gill has shown off his fancy footwork on a festive edition of Strictly Come Dancing.

The boyband heartthrob joined former Bolton Wanderers midfielder Fabrice Muamba - who suffered a heart attack during an FA Cup tie - for the Christmas special of the BBC One show.

They join comics Bobby Ball and Katy Brand, actress Sheila Hancock and presenter Helen Skelton. Chart star JB is seen performing a colossal leap high above his partner Ola Jordan during the show, to be screened on Christmas Day at 6.15pm.

The programme will also see a number of past contestants returning to the show including Natasha Kaplinsky, Chelsee Healey, Chris Hollins and Rachel Stevens.

Hard-to-please judge Craig Revel Horwood will also be showing his lighter side as he dresses up as Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer during the 75-minute show.
