The BBC is continuing to round out the line-up of contestants for Strictly Come Dancing.
Good Morning Britain’s Charlotte Hawkins has signed up to compete in the fifteenth season of the BBC Studios produced series, which is set to air on BBC One later this year.
“I am so thrilled to be one of the contestants on Strictly this year! I’ve always been a big fan of the show”, Charlotte said in a statement. “It is a dream come true to be taking part and I’ll be following in the footsteps of my Good Morning Britain colleagues. I’m looking forward to stepping out from behind the news desk to cha-cha-cha my way across the dancefloor!”
The addition of Hawkins was announced earlier today on Good Morning Britain. She joins a line-up that includes Brian Conley, Susan Calman, Aston Merrygold, Simon Rimmer, Joe McFadden, Reverend Richard Coles, Gemma Atkinson, Ruth Langsford, Davood Ghadami and Mollie King. Further contestants are expected to be announced later today.
