Irish TV presenter confirmed as sixth Strictly Come Dancing contestant

Irish TV presenter Angela Scanlon is the latest star confirmed for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing line-up.

She joins Eddie Kadi, Amanda Abbington, Layton Williams, Angela Rippon, and Krishnan Guru-Murthy in swapping the day job for the ballroom later this year.

Speaking about joining the Strictly family, Angela was evidently over the moon.

‘I’m excited. I’m not great at keeping a secret, it’s a bit of a relief. But it’s all very real now,’ she told Zoe Ball on her Radio 2 Breakfast show.

She added: ‘I’ve told a few people. If you tell me a secret and it’s super guarded you can people confident I’m not going to blab it, but I’ve told 1700 of my closest friends.

‘I have no idea how my pelvic floor will react to that level of jumping.’

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One and iPlayer later this year.
