Carol Kirkwood signs for Strictly

Carol Kirkwood has joined the Strictly Come Dancing line-up.

Shorty before her slot on today's BBC Breakfast show, the Scottish weather presenter was announced as the next star to shimmy her way across the famous dancefloor when the 13th series kicks off on BBC One next month.

Presenter and former Strictly contestant Bill Turnbull put on a top hat and tails to break the good news live. And Carol sounded absolutely thrilled to be a part of the popular Saturday night show.

“I am beyond excited to be taking part in the best programme on British telly and have been a huge fan since it started! I can't wait to learn to dance and hope my experience on Strictly will be a breeze. Whether it will be or not is one forecast I cannot predict!” Carol gushed.

Strictly has been announcing its stars gradually, building excitement for fans. Last week former Corrie star Georgia May Foote, 24, was officially announced as a contestant.

“I am so excited to be part of Strictly 2015! It is something I have always wanted to take part in and now I just can’t wait to get started! I love dancing and I love a challenge so this is the perfect experience for me,” Georgia gushed.

Georgia and Carol join Katie Derham, Kellie Bright, Ainsley Harriott and Jeremy Vine, who were all announced last week.

Each year sees 15 famous faces compete, so it looks likely that the coming weeks will bring some more big news for telly fans.
