Anastacia has signed up for Strictly Come Dancing.

Yep, THE Anastacia!

It's fair to say we're more than a little excited about this contestant!

Lucca Summer Festival 2016


Anastacia, 47, has sold more than 30 million records worldwide and her hits include 'I'm Outta Love', 'One Day In Your Life', 'Paid My Dues' and 'Left Outside Alone'.

The American singer is the tenth celebrity confirmed for the BBC One dance floor and, despite being an international popstar, she insists she's NOT a dancer at all.

"I am not a dancer. I am looking forward to having fun doing something I have never done before," she said in a statement. "I have always been a fan of this TV show and admired each contestant year after year. I have seen many people have a positive experience on this show."

Anastacia said she's looking forward to as much "bling" as possible on her costumes, and learning the sexy Salsa, joking: "I think I have a 28-year-old Latina trapped inside my body."

She said: "I am not really competitive with others as much as I am with myself. The word perfectionist may be fitting. When I set my goal on something I get what I want."

We reckon she's one to watch this year!
