England cricketer Graeme Swann, who was a part of the 2009 Ashes-winning side, has signed up for British dance reality show — Strictly Come Dancing. Swann, 39, follows a long list of former cricketers to participate in the TV show and some have even won it. Batsman Mark Ramprakash, 48, won the show in 2006, while Darren Gough, 47, the year before. Phil Tufnell, 52, was a part of the show in 2009, and former skipper Michael Vaughan, 43, did the same in 2012.

"Producers love a sportsman and cricketers have a great track record. Though Graeme might come across as a bit awkward, they're hoping he's got twinkle toes like some of his predecessors," a show source told British tabloid The Sun. Swann will join pop stars Ashley Roberts, 36, and Faye Tozer, 42, and Kate Silverton, 48 on the show which starts next month.
