The winner of three series of the hit ITV show will take the lead on the dancefloor for the craze which combines dance and aerobic moves to energetic music.

The Ballroom is hosting the one-off celebrity class to raise awareness of keeping fit during Merlin Health and Safety Week.

Everybody who attends the one hour class, which begins at 9am on Thursday, is welcome to stay in the Ballroom and continue dancing to the sounds of the world-famous Wurlitzer.

We are looking forward to seeing him show us how to Zumba at this free session in the Ballroom, to improve everyone fitness while having fun.”
