The singer confirmed the news to BBC Radio earlier today:

"Earlier this year, I decided to take a short break from touring and told myself that I would only consider doing something if it was both different and exciting.

"Well, what could be more exciting than Strictly Come Dancing? I love to dance and boy am I looking forward to getting started and being the best that I can be."

The singer joins seven other confirmed contestants Jeremy Vine, Ainsley Harriott, Kellie Bright, Georgia May Foote, Katie Derham, Carol Kirkwood and Peter Andre.
