Strictly 2014: The Saturdays’ Frankie Bridge confirms she’s taking part

Frankie is the first competitor announced for this year’s dancing competition

Strictly Come Dancing has its first competitor – The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge.


The 25-year-old announced the news on BBC Breakfast saying, “I’ve always wanted to be part of the show.

“It looks like so much fun and the costumes are just gorgeous. I can’t wait to get started. Like so many little girls, I used to take dance lessons when I was in primary school. I really love dancing but this is going to be so different from anything I have done with The Saturdays.”

Frankie, who is married to footballer Wayne Bridge, first arrived on the singing scene as part of S Club Juniors when she was just 12-years-old and has been with The Saturdays since 2007.

There’ll be plenty more names added to the list, hoping to scoop the glitter ball trophy from last year’s reigning champ Abbey Clancy. Among those rumoured to be joining are MasterChef’s Gregg Wallace and Judy Murray, mum of tennis star Andy.


The show kicks off in September, with Tess Daly joined by new co-host Claudia Winkleman.
