Pixie's involvement in Strictly was revealed through the show's official Twitter and Vine accounts on Wednesday afternoon (27 August).

She's the 11th confirmed celebrity contestant.

"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."

The 23-year-old Brit had teased fans that she had big news to share, tweeting earlier today: "So excited! Some news is coming, can't wait to tell you! Announcement soon at 2:30PM UK time... so watch this space for news!"

Pixie signed her message with a pair of dancing shoes meaning a fair few clever fans had already guessed what the big reveal might be!

The singer is not a total stranger to performing (obvs!) being a pop star and having attended the Italia Conti Academy of Theatre Arts on a scholarship when she was a kid.

She'll definitely bring a LOT of glam to the show, right?!
