Strictly Come Dancing 2014: Caroline Flack joins celebrity line-up
The TV presenter will be hitting the ballroom when the series returns
Caroline Flack is set to join the new series of Strictly Come Dancing when the celebrity ballroom contest returns next month.
The TV presenter is known for shows such as I’m A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here Now!, The Xtra Factor and Gladiators. She once dated One Direction's Harry Styles.
Flack revealed her exciting news live on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show this morning while chatting with host Scott Mills, who confirmed earlier this week that he too would be donning some glitzy suits to dance in the BBC competition.
“Ever since I was a presenter on CBBC and used to see the Strictly judges walking around the Television Centre I have wanted to be on the show,” Flack said.
“I am so excited to get started and I just want to get through the first dance with no mistakes. Plus I really want to master my ‘dance face’!”
Flack and Mills will join a host of other famous faces on the popular show, including Frankie Bridge from The Saturdays, tennis player Andy Murray’s mum Judy, Blue singer Simon Webbe, TOWIE star Mark Wright, pop star Pixie Lott and former rugby international Thom Evans.
The final three contestants will be revealed live on The One Show on Friday 29 August.
