Appearing on the station's Breakfast Show, she said: "I've got sequins on my lingerie - can I say that? - and I intend to wear nothing but sequins until I get turfed out, which will probably be rather soon, I fear."

She also said she wanted a partner who was 'virile' but 'patient' to help her cope on the dancefloor.

Other names linked with this year's show include singer Sophie Ellis Bextor, WAG and model Abbey Clancy, fashion designer Julien Macdonald, rugby star Ben Cohen and 'Hairy Biker' Dave Myers.
