Caroline looked pretty happy about the news when she was pictured earlier today, looking lovely in skinny jeans and a simple black T-shirt.

She said: "Ever since I was a presenter on CBBC and used to see the Strictly judges walking around Television Centre I have wanted to be on the show. I am so excited to get started and I just want to get through the first dance with no mistakes... plus I really want to master my 'dance face'!"

Caroline later tweeted: "Gahhhhhhh! I'm taking part in this years Strictly ...I haven't been this nervous since I entered the Norfolk Disco Dance championship 1992."
