The Saturdays singer Frankie Bridge will be heading straight to the ballroom once the girl group complete their UK tour in support of their recently released Greatest Hits.
On signing up for Strictly Frankie says, ‘I just love it. I watch it with my mum – all my family love it. For me, dancing is the best bit of what I do. I just love dancing. To learn something I’ve never learned before and get to do it every weekend – it’s just fun.’
What is she looking for in a dance partner? ‘I want someone who won’t make it too hard but I do want to be pushed. I like to be pushed but I want someone who’s able to have a laugh. I laugh at myself a lot.’
Is there any particular dances she’s looking forward to? ‘I like the look of the tango. The ballroom stuff worries me more because it’s more serious. I’d like to do the Charleston though because it looks fun.’
Strictly Come Dancing returns at 8pm Sunday on BBC One. Watch Frankie’s launch interview below:
