Dolly Parton gets dancing shoes on for Strictly Come Dancing

It may be the last day of British summertime (that’s it?) but don’t be down, there’s so much to look forward as we head towards Christmas – can’t believe we’re writing the C word already.

X Factor has kicked off in spectacular style and Strictly will shortly be back on our screens in all its glittering glory and show bosses have revealed fans are in for a treat: Dolly Parton will perform on the Saturday, September 10 red carpet series premiere.

The bubbly blonde will showcase new single Together You & I on the show.

Dolly said: "My eyes are dancing, my heart is dancing, and my feet are dancing all the way to the Strictly Come Dancing season premiere, where I will be singing Together You & I from my Better Day CD.

"So dust off your dancing shoes, and join us!"

The official line-up for this year’s show is yet to be announced but names tipped so far include Richard Madeley, Holly Valance, Alex Jones and Chris Tarrant.

Celebrity Chef Gino D’Acampo has been thrown into the mix as has former EastEnders star Barbara Windsor.

To whet your Strictly appetite, take a look at Dolly Parton when she appeared on STV back in 2009. Ah, we love a bit of Dolly.
