Pixie Lott is the latest celebrity confirmed for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.
The singer-songwriter dropped hints on Twitter before confirming her involvement. “I’m so excited to be doing Strictly, it’s going to be a lot of fun,” she said. “I always want to push myself as a performer so can’t wait to learn the routines.” As a young actress, Lott appeared in the West End production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and as Louisa von Trapp in BBC One’s Celebrate The Sound of Music, before embarking on her own music career.
She joins Frankie Bridge, Judy Murray, Alison Hammond, Thom Evans, Simon Webbe, Mark Wright, Sunetra Sarker, Jake Wood, Steve Backshall and Scott Mills in this year’s series, with four more celebrities still to be confirmed. This year’s launch show has been scheduled for 8pm on Sunday, September 7 on BBC One.
