Pixie Lott has been confirmed as the 11th star taking part in this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
The singer-songwriter, model and actress (left) revealed the news following a series of cryptic clues posted on social media.
She said: "I'm so excited to be doing Strictly, it's going to be a lot of fun. I always want to push myself as a performer so can't wait to learn the routines."
As a young actress, she appeared in the West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and in BBC One's Celebrate The Sound Of Music.
Lott (23) joins singers Simon Webbe and Frankie Bridge, tennis matriarch Judy Murray, presenter Alison Hammond, former rugby player Thom Evans, reality TV's Mark Wright, actress Sunetra Sarker, EastEnders' Jake Wood, naturalist Steve Backshall and DJ Scott Mills.
Three more names are to be confirmed. The new series will be the first one without host Bruce Forsyth, with Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman sharing the presenting job.
