Former Coronation Street star Georgia May Foote has revealed she is "so excited" to get started on the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Earlier today, it was confirmed that Georgia is the fourth celebrity to sign up for Strictly and the 24-year-old couldn't have looked happier following the announcement.

After appearing on BBC Breakfast to reveal her place on the competition's next series, Georgia flashed a huge smile for the cameras before sharing her excitement with fans on Twitter.

On her exit from the BBC studios, Georgia looked pretty chuffed to be picking up her dancing shoes. The actress cut a gorgeous figure in her head-to-toe black ensemble, teaming her wrap-over dress with heeled boots and silver hooped earrings.

As she headed home the starlet made sure to tweet her excitement, telling her followers: "The secret is out! So excited to be a part of @bbcstrictly 2015! Eeeek! Thanks for all your messages!"

Georgia's tweet comes after she revealed on BBC Breakfast she had always wanted to take part in the show, describing Strictly as the "perfect experience for her".

Her Strictly debut will follow her exit from Coronation Street in March earlier this year. Georgia was best known for playing the role of Katy Armstrong in the ITV soap, but decided to leave to focus on other projects.

She will join the likes of Jeremy Vine, celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott and EastEnders actress Kellie Bright on Strictly this time round.

Following news she will be on the show, Georgia was inundated with well-wishes from her former co-stars and celebrity pals. Her boyfriend Sean Ward (he and Georgia went public with their romance back in May) was quick to tweet Georgia's exciting news, while Strictly host Tess Daly made sure to welcome her to the show.
