Monday morning kicked off with a big announcement on Radio 1’s Breakfast Show, where The Saturdays star joined host Nick Grimshaw to tell listeners that she was “ready for the challenge”.
“It’s completely different to what I’ve done with The Saturdays and I’ve never done any stage school,” she added. “I’m quite slow at picking up routines in general with the band. I’m really nervous so I’ve just got to throw myself in.”
Having kickstarted the line-up reveal process, the BBC is now planning to unveil another name on Tuesday 8th August.
The second celebrity contestant confirmed for #Strictly 2017 will be revealed tomorrow. Keep your eyes peeled 👀 @bbcstrictly
