JASON DONOVAN

Actor

Australian Jason Donovan first came to the attention of the British public in the soap opera Neighbours playing Scott Robinson. His on-screen girlfriend Charlene was played by Kylie Minogue, and both went on to musical careers starting out with a host of singles produced by Stock, Aitken and Waterman, including their number one duet, Especially For You. Alongside his music career, Jason continued to act, and took the lead in the West End production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat. He has taken a variety of roles on both stage and screen since, and took part in I'm A Celebrity ... Get Me Out Of Here! in 2006, and has recently toured with the stage production of The Sound of Music starring as Captain Von Trapp.

Jason will be dancing in the ninth series of Strictly Come Dancing and will be partnered with Kristina Rihanoff.
