SOPHIE ELLIS-BEXTOR

Singer and Songwriter

British singer Sophie Ellis-Bextor came to the public attention in 2000 when she featured on the massive hit by Spiller, Groovejet (If This Ain't Love), before releasing her solo debut album Read My Lips that produced two UK number two singles, Take Me Home and Murder on the Dancefloor. Sophie has released five albums to date. She is almost as famous for being the daughter of Blue Peter presenter, Janet Ellis, as she is for her own musical career, and the two of them appeared on the Channel 4 game show, Million Pound Drop winning £5000 for charity.

Sophie will be taking part in the eleventh series of Strictly Come Dancing and will be dancing with former Strictly champion, Brendan Cole.
