The celebrity confirmed on The 1 Show on Thursday she is going to be substituting Zoe Ball on spin-off series It Takes 2.
She explained:"It is a dream come true to become a part of the It Takes 2 staff!
"Though it is not possible to fulfill in the shoes of a legend such as Zoe Ball, I am hoping to create her all the fans proud."
"I won't be dancing. I really don't wish to well up since I have been welling up a great deal now, but that's been the toughest aspect of accepting this wonderful honor to combine Takes Two.
"It is the realisation that I am not going to be on this mythical Strictly dancefloor any more. However, I feel this is quite amazing and natural development.
"I'm still part of this family, I'm still going to be visiting my fellow experts all of the time and that I shall keep dance, as they state. I shall find a way to keep dance "
