TV presenter Caroline Flack is best-known for presenting The X Factor spin-off show The Xtra Factor. This year though she’s waltzing her way onto Strictly Come Dancing instead!
Taking part in Strictly is something Caroline has wanted to do for a long time, ‘I have always wanted to do the show and this year the time was right. Ever since I was a presenter on CBBC and used to see the Strictly judges walking around Television Centre I have wanted to be on the show.’
Is Caroline ready to be Strictlyfied? ‘Being ‘Strictlyfied’ is the opposite to who I am normally, but on this show you definitely have to go with the flow. If you weren’t wearing sequins you would look weird, so I am looking forward to embracing them!’
Has she been busy preparing for the show? ‘Me and my boyfriend have done a bit of practice in the kitchen but that really is about it. The only problem is that my boyfriend is the worst dancer I have ever seen in my entire life! Although to be fair he really does try hard though even if he does move like a mosquito, haha!’
Strictly Come Dancing returns at 8pm Sunday on BBC One. Watch Caroline’s launch interview below:
