The news was announced on Chris Evans’ BBC Radio 2 show on Friday (19 August) morning, and the US superstar can’t wait to hit the dancefloor.
She told the host: “I am not a dancer. I am looking forward to having fun doing something I have never done before.
“I am looking forward to Salsa, I think I have a 28-year-old Latina trapped inside my body.”
“I’m a total ‘10’ on the level of excitement and definitely a ‘10’ scared!” she continued. “Seriously though, I can’t wait to get started.
“Taking part in ‘Strictly’ is a dream, it’s such a new challenge for me I’ve never done anything like this before so I hope I pull it off.
“I’ve got a lot of training to do before I’m twinkle toes so I’m eager to get my partner and get going! I’m ready.”
Laura Whitmore will also be fighting it out in a bid to win the Glitterball Trophy, along with Daisy Lowe, former ‘Hollyoaks’ actor Danny Mac, Louise Redknapp, Ore Oduba and Melvin Odom.
