Saturdays star shares exciting news

Frankie Sandford has announced that she’s taking part in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The singer, 25, revealed her excitement about being a contestant on the show during an appearance on BBC Breakfast with The Saturdays yesterday.

I’ve actually always wanted to do it because dancing is my favourite thing that we get to do,’ Frankie admitted.

So I’ll get to do that every week and learn something new. But it’s going to be completely different for me.

I’m used to being a bit more relaxed but I’m going to have to think about fingers and where my head is and things like that.

That’s making me really nervous because I think people will assume, “Oh, she’ll be fine” but I don’t know, I’ve never done that before.’

Frankie also shared her news with Twitter fans as she posed for a pretty photo backstage at the BBC.

It’s finally out there! I’ll be dancing the night away on @bbcstrictly ,’ Wayne Bridge‘s wife told her followers.

Fans can’t wait to see Frankie taking to the ballroom.

You’ll be awesome at that! Will deffo tune in!’ one wrote.

Another commented: congratulations I’m sure you’ll be brilliant and stunning in the gowns Xoxo.’

Frankie’s the first celebrity to be confirmed for the new series of Strictly, which starts in September on BBC One.
