Robert Webb has signed up to do Strictly Come Dancing 2021, and he's already an amazing mover.

The Peep Show star, 48, is no stranger to dancing competitions, and took part in the first series of Let's Dance for Comic Relief in 2009, which he won.

He performed an incredible routine to Flashdance... What a Feeling, and no doubt this experience will help him when he competes in Strictly later this year.

Robert donned a curly wig, leg-warmers and a skimpy leotard to look like actress Jennifer Beals, who dances to the song in the 1983 film.

He showed off some incredible moves in the high-energy routine, including high kicks and spins.

Throughout the routine Robert had a huge smile on his face, showing he was throughly enjoying himself.

At the end of the performance he got huge cheers from the crowd.

In the grand finale of the series, he beat Paddy McGuinness and Keith Lemon, who performed (I've Had) The Time of My Life from Dirty Dancing.

Robert was one of the first celebrities to be announced for Strictly Come Dancing 2021.

He said: "I am ludicrously excited to be taking part in Strictly this year.

"It’s a big, generous, joyful show and I can't wait to get packed into a spandex onesie and fired from a glitter cannon directly at Claudia Winkleman. At least I think that's what happens.

"My goal is to try and survive from week to week without causing serious injury to myself or innocent bystanders. I know it’s going to be a challenge.

"To do well in this competition is a test of character, although mainly it's a test of dancing."

Strictly comes after a difficult few years for Robert, who in April last year admitted he had heart surgery in November 2019 to save his life.

On the morning of his operation, there was a problem with the intensive care unit and the hospital tried to delay surgery until the cardiologist told the surgeon: "You can't send him home for five days, he isn't going to last two days."

During surgery, he also lost two-thirds of his blood cells

He said: "So it was all a bit touch and go."

Other celebrities who have been announced are TV presenter AJ Odudu and McFly's Tom Fletcher.

Great British Bake Off winner John Waite is also taking part, in the show's first ever all-male dance partnership.

The show had its first ever female same sex partnership last year with Katya Jones and Nicola Adams.
