He is just weeks away from donning his sequins and making his Strictly Come Dancing debut.

And Robert Webb was making strenuous efforts to be in tip-top shape for the dance floor with a run out in the sunshine.

The comedian, 48, sported a pink vest, black shorts and blue trainers as he listened to music while pounding the streets of Hampstead, north London.

Webb, best known for his comedy work with David Mitchell, was one of the first celebrities to be announced for this year’s Strictly line-up.

He has said: ‘I am ludicrously excited. It’s a big, generous, joyful show.’

The Peep Show star will be hoping to follow his 2009 win in Let’s Dance For Comic Relief when he donned a leotard, long boots and curly wig for a Flashdance routine.

He took up running after emergency surgery when routine screening picked up a potentially fatal heart defect in 2019.

Other celebrities taking part in Strictly this year include McFly’s Tom Fletcher, Olympian Adam Peaty and Dragon’s Den star Sara Davies.

This 19th series is expected to start at the end of next month and run until Christmas, with a full line-up of 15 contestants again.

Last year’s contest, won by comedian Bill Bailey and his partner Oti Mabuse, was shortened due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Anton Du Beke will swap the dance floor for a score paddle as he becomes a judge, replacing Bruno Tonioli, and there are four new professional dancers.
