Andy Murray's mum Judy has been confirmed as the latest familiar face to join this year's Strictly Come Dancing lineup.

Judy is usually seen cheering tennis champ Andy on from the sidelines, but the roles will reverse when she takes to the dance floor this autumn.

The news was announced on the official Strictly Come Dancing Twitter account today (18 August), alongside a photo of tennis coach Judy taking a serve with a 'seven' score paddle.

Alongside it, the caption read: "Look who's all set for Strictly. The lovely Judy Murray @judmoo, that's who. Serve-en!" Very good, folks!

Judy has since said: "I'm a huge Strictly Come Dancing fan but a total armchair dancer. It's going to be a big challenge for me and for whoever has to dance with me but I absolutely can't wait to get started!"

Last week, Saturdays star Frankie Sandford was the first celebrity dancer to be announced for this year's Strictly.

She gushed: "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."

Keep 'em coming, we can't wait to find out who the next hopeful dancer is!
