Frankie Sandford is the first big name to be confirmed as a new celebrity contestant on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing. EXCITING.
The Saturdays singer will be swapping her tiny stage outfits for spandex and sequins galore as she takes to the BBC ballroom to strut her stuff on the Saturday night show.
Sharing her happy news earlier today, Frankie said of her new toe-tapping venture: ‘I’m such a huge fan of Strictly! I’ve always wanted to be a part of the show – it looks like so much fun and the costumes are just gorgeous.
‘Like so many little girls, I used to take dance lessons when I was in primary school and I really love dancing but this is going to be so different from anything I have done with The Saturdays. I just can’t wait to get started!’
Us neither, Franks. We so wanted those rumours last year to be true!
Frankie then shared a snap of her grinning and looking gorgeous in a pale pink quilted mini and black mesh top at the BBC studios, with the caption: ‘It’s finally out there! I’ll be dancing the night away on @bbcstrictly.’
We’re already itching to see those outfits…
