After months of gossip surrounding Loose Women star Ruth Langsford potentially appearing on Strictly Come Dancing, the popular BBC show announced that there will indeed be a Loose Women star joining the line-up – her co-star Jamelia!


The mum-of-two, and Loose Women regular, was said to be excited and nervous at the same time. Chatting to Hello, Jamelia (pictured with her two daughters below) revealed, “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!”


She also confessed that her daughters, “are amazing dancers” and one of her reasons for signing up for Strictly was to learn how to dance properly to, “give them a run for their money, and end them teasing me once and for all!”

The usually bluntly honest Loose Women star will be taking to the dance floor alongside a line-up that so far includes the likes of Peter Andre, Carol Kirkwood and Corrie actress Georgia May Foote.
