Jade Johnson - is 29 yrs old and is a Commonwealth Games and European Championship Silver Medalist.
She specialises in the Long Jump.
She takes part in the London Olympic Games in 2012.
Having grown up in Liverpool she became streetwise at an early age.
Jade has become known for the coloured fishnet stockings she wears for 'jumping'.
Apparently this started as a bet - but now she has become superstitious and thinks if she doesn't wear them she jumps poorly.
She loves dancing and has very high standards.
Loving a challenge this competion will suit her down to the ground. She has danced for Sport Relief so understands how hard it is going to be.
Her partner for this competition is Ian Waite.
All the very best to both of you.
