The astrologer explained that he had a feeling he would be paired with Flavia Cacace in tonight's launch show.
"I did, of course," he said. "I said Pisces or Libra and that was that. I've got Venus, Mars and Jupiter in Pisces so that's why I knew [Flavia] was Pisces."
Grant added that he is pleased he will be dancing with Cacace, saying: "For me this is the love and the joy of music, which dance links into. We had a chat [before we knew we were paired up] when I said that basically music motivates me and if the music's crap I can't move a muscle. We both said the same."
Grant, who revealed that he is particularly looking forward to the Latin dances, also suggested that Nancy Dell'Olio and Anton Du Beke will make a good pairing.
"You need [someone] soft and sensitive who will keep you under control," he told Dell'Olio. "You'll be so wonderful together, honestly."
Strictly professional James Jordan has suggested that Grant could be a dark horse in the competition this year.
