Popstar Pixie Lott may be known more for her voice than her dance moves but that’s all set to change as she joins the line-up for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.
How does Pixie rate her dancing skills? ‘I don’t know. I went to a performing arts school so we danced there, but music was my passion and took over. It will be fun to get back into dancing and learning a new type of dance.’
How does she feel about the judges? ‘They make me nervous! I think they’re all great in their own way. My favourite is Darcey. She’s the only ballerina I’d heard of as a young girl. Ballet’s such a discipline – she got to the top of her game, which is amazing.’
Talking about what she wants from a dance partner Pixie says, ‘Someone who’s fun and easy-going and works hard, but doesn’t take it too seriously.’
Strictly Come Dancing returns at 8pm Sunday on BBC One. Watch Pixie’s launch interview below:
