Pixie Lott Joins The 2014 Strictly Come Dancing Crew

Pixie Lott has just been confirmed as the eleventh celebrity taking part in this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.

The singer confirmed the news earlier today via the official @bbcstrictly Twitter feed, after teasing fans this morning by posting: ‘Ahh, got something very special to reveal soon cats…’ followed by ‘So excited! Some news is coming, can’t wait to tell you! Announcement soon at 2.30pm UK time…so watch this space for news.’

‘@PixieLott is ready to shine on Strictly! Our 11th celebrity of 2014! ‘, the BBC finally announced.

The 23-year-old will be joining The Saturdays’ Frankie Sandford and Mark Wright on this year’s star-studded line-up. And we reckon Pixie’s in with a fighting chance of scooping that glitterball if those on-stage dance moves are anything to go by.

‘I’m so excited to be doing Strictly, it’s going to be a lot of fun’, she said of her new venture. ‘I always want to push myself as a performer so can’t wait to learn the routines.’

We wonder who’s next?!
