The Saturdays star Frankie Bridge is the first celebrity to be confirmed for the 2016 Strictly Come Dancing UK tour.

Frankie, who was a finalist in the 2014 series, had to pull out of this year's live tour when she found out she was pregnant with baby number two.

Frankie took part in last year's show.

However, following the birth of her son Carter back in August, Frankie has been given another opportunity to shimmy across the stage adorned in sequins and live out the Strictly dream!

A thrilled Frankie said: "I was so disappointed not to be able to perform in this year's Strictly Tour, as I'd been so looking forward to continuing my Strictly journey.

"But following the birth of my son in August, I'm thrilled to have been asked to join the 2016 tour. It will be great to get my dancing shoes back on and be part of the Strictly family again. Roll on January!"

As the first celeb confirmed, Frankie currently has the entire stage to herself, which could get a bit tiring come show night... The singer will join new Strictly tour host Mel Giedroyc, who describes herself as a "superfan" of the show.

Speaking about her dream job, Mel revealed she's even got her outfit planned, saying: "As the host, I sort of envisage myself as a Big Top master. In fact, I'm thinking tails, top hat and very, very dominatrix shoes. I will be a stern but loving mistress,"

The tour opens at the Barclaycard Arena, Birmingham on 22 January 2016.
