RUSSELL GRANT

Astrologer

Sixty-year-old Russell Grant started a career as an actor, who still loves performing, but he became a household name for his work as the resident astrologer on daytime television programmes, starting with the BBC's Breakfast Time before moving to TV-AM's Good Morning show a few years later. He has worked regularly as a television presenter since, hosting some of his own series, including Russell Grant's Postcards. He's no stranger to reality television either, having taken part in Celebrity Fit Club and, most recently, Channel 4's Celebrity Five Go To ...

Russell will be dancing in the ninth series of Strictly Come Dancing and is partnered with series five finalist Flavia Cacace.
