Presenter Angela Scanlon is the sixth star to be added to the line-up so far. The news will be broadcast on BBC Radio 2’s breakfast show on Monday (7 August).
Angela said: “I’m scared, I’m excited and I have so many questions. Will they tan me? How itchy are sequins?! Are there flesh-colored sports bras?”
“Well – there’s only one way to find out, isn’t there!? Now I’m panicking a little…but I’m also secretly excited at the prospect of all that glitter. Let’s go!”
The One Show kicked off Friday night (4th August) with the long-awaited announcements.
Other famous faces confirmed for the dance extravaganza include Sherlock’s Amanda Abbington, former news anchor Angela Rippon, stage and screen star Layton Williams, Channel 4 journalist Krishnan Guru-Murthy and comedian Eddie Kadi.
