She had joined Steve Wright on his afternoon show and finally revealed those Strictly rumours surrounding her are true!

She said: "I'm actually really nervous. I have to say I never thought I'd do it. I don't know how I'm here! Over the years the conversation has come up, and here I am! My husband is laughing at me."

We're sure she'll be just fine, you?

Speaking ahead of her Strictly debut, Louise said: "I'm looking forward to learning a new skill – ballroom and dancing with a partner is something I've never done before! I would love to get as far as I can to do everyone proud and stay in long enough so my kids don't think I'm rubbish!"

Louise also took to Twitter to share her Strictly news and shared a video of herself dancing with her dog Blu. She joked alongside the clip: "Hoping my dance partner is as good as Blu Redknapp… SO excited for @bbcstrictly x #strictly2016."

So far, the other celebrities confirmed for Strictly's new series are politician Ed Balls, Will Young, Laura Whitmore, BBC Breakfast's sports presenter Ore Oduba and former Xtra Factor host Melvin Odoom.
