Front Row judges announced for Saturday nights Stepping Out.


Mel B, Jason Gardiner and Wayne Sleep have joined the judging panel of new ITV Entertainment show Stepping Out.

Six celebrities and their real life partners put their relationships to the ultimate test…via the form of dance. They will be judged live by The Front Row who will offer feedback and give individual ‘him and hers’ scores revealing who has impressed them and who needs to put their ‘dancing shoes’ back on.

From week 2 the pressure mounts as the couples are dancing to keep their place in the competition. The Front Row scores will be combined with the viewers vote and the couple at the bottom of the leader board goes home.

The line up includes:

– Brian McFadden & wife Vogue Williams
– Denise Welch & husband Lincoln Townley
– Oritsé Williams & girlfriend A.J Azari
– Laurence Llewelyn Bowen & wife Jackie Llewelyn Bowen
– Carl Froch & girlfriend Rachael Cordingley
– Glynis Barber & husband Michael Brandon

Mel B said “I absolutely love the sound of this show, it’s going to be very entertaining.  Real life couples trying to learn a new dance routine in a week? You’re just asking for trouble.  I can’t wait to get back in the UK with this hot new show, we’re going to have a great time”.

Jason Gardiner says: “Unlike other dance shows a professional won’t partner our celebrities. Instead they will have to rely on their real life partners! Oh dear! The pressure will be on for the celebrities and their relationships to deliver on the night in front of the British public and yours truly, of course!.”

Wayne Sleep said “What a joy this show is going to be, I love everything dance and seeing our couples try and master a new routine every week is going to be a treat.  I have high hopes for them…what could possibly go wrong?!”.

Stepping Out begins this Saturday (31st August) at 6.30pm on ITV
