Strictly Come Dancing | Eleventh Celebrity Confirmed

Strictly Come Dancing is back on our screens in September, and all eyes have been on who the 13th celebrity is going to be on the roster.

Now, we finally have confirmation thanks to an announcement made on The One Show. The 13th celebrity for Strictly is Anita Rani, a well known presenter who has worked on quite a few projects over the years.

Anita had this to say about being on the show: “So many elements of Strictly terrify me but I shall try and think #BeyonceAlwaysOnBeat as I hit the dance floor. I’m so excited to indulge that fantasy and hopefully learn some mean moves in the process. Let’s get our groove on!”

She will be joining Jay McGuiness of The Wanted, sportsman Anthony Ogogo, popstar Daniel O’Donnell, singer Peter Andre, BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood, broadcaster Katie Durham, actress Georgia May Foote, actress Kellie Bright, celebrity chef Ainsley Harriot and Radio 2 presenter Jeremy Vine.
