Jamelia confirmed the news to the BBC's Director of Television, Danny Cohen, and revealed she's taking on the challenge for her daughters!

She said: "My girls are huge fans of Strictly, but when I told them I was doing it they laughed as they know that dancing is not my forté!

"The girls are amazing dancers though so I definitely want to learn a new skill so that I'll be able to give them a run for their money, and end them teasing me once and for all!"

We can't wait to see Jamelia samba and salsa her way through the competition!

Other celebrities already confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing this year include television presenter Anita Rani, The Wanted's Jay McGuiness, broadcaster Jeremy Vine, chef Ainsley Harriott, EastEnders actress Kellie Bright, Corrie star Georgia May Foote, presenter Katie Derham, weather reporter Carol Kirkwood, and boxer Anthony Ogogo.
