Vanessa Feltz has confirmed she will star on the new series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 51-year-old TV personality announced today (29.08.13) she will appear on the BBC One dance contest, and she is excited about wearing some sparkly outfits throughout the competition.

Speaking on Radio 2's breakfast show, she said: "I've got sequins on my lingerie, and I intend to wear nothing else until I get turfed out."

The star is hoping to be paired with a "virile ... but patient" professional dancer who will help teach her the complex routines, and thinks 33-year-old Pasha Kovalev could be the perfect match for her.

It won't be the first time Vanessa has showcased her moves as she took part in 'Let's Dance For Comic Relief' in March.

Several stars are rumoured to be joining Vanessa on 'Strictly' including model Abbey Clancy, singer Sophie Ellis Bextor and Hairy Biker Dave Myers.

Former 'Coronation Street' star Natalie Gumede and golf legend Tony Jacklin are also set to star on the programme.

The Saturday night show will air from Saturday September 7 on BBC One at 6:50pm.
