Strictly Come Dancing 2014 line-up: Scott Mills confirmed to hit the dancefloor
Mills will join the likes of Frankie from The Saturdays and Simon from Blue
Known for his entertainment slot on BBC Radio 1, Mills confirmed his exciting news on the station’s breakfast show this morning, along with judge Craig Revel Horwood.
Mills is one of the longest serving Radio 1 presenters, having been a regular on their airwaves for the past 15 years.
“My listeners are so used to me playing pranks that they’re probably going to think this is just another one,” he joked. “It’s not, I really am doing this!
“I’m honoured to be part of the biggest show on television and hoping this could be the start of a brand new skill for me. When I was younger, my Nan danced the foxtrot and waltz and it would be great for me to learn those dances, but I will be out of my comfort zone.
“Whatever happens, I’m really looking forward to the weekly fake tans!”
Mills hosts Radio 1’s weekday early afternoon show from 1pm to 4pm at the moment, as well as the Official Chart Update on Sundays.
Elsewhere, he has been seen presenting The National Lottery Live on BBC One and covering the Eurovision Song Contest on BBC Three.
There are still five more celebrities to be confirmed.
