Rochelle Humes appeared on Strictly Come Dancing in 2010 for the Children in Need Special where she danced with Ian Waite.

“I love the show but the thought of doing it again makes me feel sick.”
Rochelle has previously spoken about her stint on the Christmas spin-off explaining she was a “bag of nerves”.
After Mollie took part in the 2017 series, Rochelle said: “I did the Christmas special of Strictly in 2013, and I was a bag of nerves.
“That was nerve-wracking enough doing one dance and it took me long enough to get my head round that, so I don’t think doing the main show would be for me.”
However, she remarked she loves watching it as someone she knows always pops up.
“I love going down to the studio to watch it but I don’t think I’ll ever take part in the main show,” Rochelle said back in 2018.
“I’ve been asked to do a few reality shows but I don’t think they are for me.”
Meanwhile, it has been revealed one star of the show will be returning for this year’s Christmas special.
