Vanessa Feltz announced that she will be among the celebrities in the new lineup for the sequintastic dance show, which returns for a new season on 7 September.

The reality television show veteran, who has appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, Celebrity Fit Club and Celebrity Wife Swap, told presenter Zoe Ball on Radio 2 this morning that she will be taking part in the new season of Strictly Come Dancing.

‘I’m inordinately excited,’ Feltz said. ‘I intend to wear sequins until I get turfed out which will probably be rather soon I fear.’

The 51-year-old radio host also opened up about what she’s hoping for from her Strictly dance partner, explaining:

‘I’d like someone patient. Someone virile, oozing testosterone, but patient.

‘I don’t want anyone who shouts at me or gets cross. That would be just terrible.’

The flamboyant Feltz is sure to add some colour to the glittertastic lineup, which will be announced on 2 September on BBC One’s The One Show.
