Laura Whitmore is the third celebrity to be confirmed for BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing 2016.
The Irish telly presenter best known for hosting I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here Now on ITV2 has signed up for BBC’s Strictly.
Laura was confirmed today on BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show with Nick Grimshaw.
Laura said: “I remember as a kid my mum said ‘one day you will do Strictly’. She’s very happy.
“I like to dance. When I was a kid I Irish danced one summer but I think ballroom and Latin are a little bit different.
“I’m going to train as much as possible. I really hope I’m good.”
