  • Strictly Come Dancing's new lineup will include BBC Breakfast host Susanna Reid

    Strictly Come Dancing’s new lineup will include BBC Breakfast host Susanna Reid.

    The Mirror reports that the BBC News presenter is confirmed to star in this season’s Strictly Come Dancing, and Susanna is said to be ‘thrilled’ by the chance to perform.

    The news comes hot on the heels of yesterday’s announcement that Vanessa Feltz would be joining the new season of the sequintastic show.

    42-year-old Susanna is a bit of a dance show veteran, having performed with Robin Windsor for the Children In Need edition of Strictly. She also amped up her fitness buff credentials when she ran the London Marathon this April.

    The Mirror, quoting an inside source, reports that if Robin and Susanna are paired up again, they may be given less training time than their competitors to learn the first dance.

    ‘We’re delighted to get Susanna on the show. She is the most popular thing on breakfast TV and is loved by millions.

    ‘She is used to getting up early for her job, but she faces a tough schedule now to fit everything in along with her family life,’ the insider told the paper.

    Will you be tuning in to see Susanna and Vanessa strut their stuff on the dance floor?
