Jordan has been paired with Alex Jones and claimed that their rivals include "Lulu, Chelsee, Holly, Harry, Robbie [and] Jason".
However, he also claimed that viewers should not discount Russell before they have seen him perform.
"Russell is going to be brilliant," he said. "He will be fantastic, because he can move as well, so he's not going to be like a John Sergeant thing - just stomp around the floor. He's good, so I think it's going to be a great year."
Meanwhile, Grant admitted that he does not want to be viewed as a comedy act and confirmed that he is taking the show seriously, saying: "I was supposed to go out to America to do my own television series in Hollywood and I cancelled it to do Strictly."
Elsewhere, Jones and fellow hopeful Dan Lobb suggested that Lulu could be one to watch.
"The one person that I've just loved spying on when we've been training is Lulu," Lobb said. "I just love her - she's so sassy and sexy and cool and I love the way she moves. And she's a bundle of energy as well."
Jones added: "She's amazing. And she's a national treasure before we even start!"
