The 27-year-old model wife of footballer Peter Crouch is set to take to the floor when the BBC dance show returns in the Autumn, according to reports.
Abbey - who lives in Cheshire - is set to relocate to London during her time on the show after being paid £35,000 to appear.
A source told The Mirror: “Abbey is really excited to be appearing on Strictly. All her family and friends watch it and Peter is being very supportive – he can’t wait to see Abbey in her slinky, sparkly costumes.
“Obviously living in Cheshire is not ideal when contestants have to train at least five times a week. She and Peter are, therefore, looking to rent a place in London and have their eye on a gorgeous £3 million pad on a very desirable road.
“Abbey’s already in fantastic shape but is looking forward to learning new moves and getting even fitter. She’ll be a fantastic contestant.”
