Judy Murray, mum of tennis champion Andy Murray, is swapping the tension of the tennis court for the glamour and glitz of the Strictly Come Dancing ballroom. 

Yes, that's right. The Scottish-born coach is the second celebrity confirmed to be taking part in this year's competition. 

The BBC announced the news on Strictly's official Twitter feed, alongside a photo of Judy posing Tango-style with a tennis ball and a number 7 score board: 

Judy will join Saturday's band member Frankie Bridge in the competition, which kicks off later this year, as well as a host of yet-to-be named celebrities. 

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC1 later this year
