Anita Rani confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing 2015

BBC Countryfile and The One Show presenter joins Jay McGuiness in today's addition to this year's line-up

Strictly Come Dancing has added another celebrity to their line-up today: Anita Rani.


It’s the first time the show has done two reveals in one day, following the announcement that The Wanted’s Jay McGuiness has also signed up.

The Countryfile and The One Show presenter was fittingly unveiled on the latter show, with Strictly joking on their Twitter page that she’s ready to give the show some “welly”.

“So many elements of Strictly terrify me but I shall try and think #BeyonceAlwaysOnBeat as I hit the dance floor. I’m so excited to indulge that fantasy and hopefully learn some mean moves in the process. Let’s get our groove on!” said Rani.

That makes eleven celebrity contestants so far with Daniel O’Donnell, Anthony Ogogo, Peter Andre, Carol Kirkwood, Jeremy Vine, Ainsley Harriott, Kellie Bright, Georgia May Foote also among the line-up. Once we have all of the celebrities confirmed we’ll find out which professional dancer they’ll be matched up with.

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC1 soon 


Robin Windsor, Alex Jones and Sir Bruce Forsyth will be at the Radio Times Festival this September.
