Vanessa Feltz is the latest celebrity to be confirmed for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing spectacle.
The 51-year-old TV personality announced the news this morning on Zoe Ball’s BBC Radio 2 breakfast show. She will be one of fifteen celebrity contestants to take to the tiles for the new series, including singer Sophie Ellis Bextor.
Feltz joked that she’s so excited about the challenge she’s already preparing by wearing sequins on her underwear.
But it seems the TV personality has also been spending some time on the dancefloor. Strictly Come Dancing shared a photo of Feltz in the studio, captioning it, “Here’s an exclusive snap of Vanessa Feltz on set yesterday in her gorgeous sequinned dress!”
They also shared a snapshot of Feltz with DJ Zoe Ball during her morning radio show.
Feltz’s partner singer Ben Ofoedu also took to social media to reveal his excitement, writing, “Good luck to my sweetness officially gonna be shaking her tushy on strictly this year! Knock em dead babes x.”
Strictly Come Dancing begins at 6:50 pm on September 7 on BBC One.
