Twinkle toes Froch will be joined on the stage by a team of champion boxers and all will be hoping to win over the viewers and, of course, the notoriously picky panel of judges in which comedy actor Miranda Hart, 2009 runner-up Paddy McGuinness and model and presenter Kelly Brook will be casting an eye over proceedings.
Froch said: “We are all hoping to put on a impressive display but the most important thing is to make loads of money for charity, so please watch the show, put your hands in your pockets and vote for us on Saturday“
