TV presenter Laura Whitmore is the third celebrity confirmed for the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Whitmore will join previously announced celebs Will Young and Ed Balls on this year’s show, which is expected to begin in September. The announcement was made this morning on The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw.

“I have watched Strictly and been obsessed with the show since series 1. It’s an incredible show and I feel so honoured to be asked to part of it. I’m not going to lie, I’m slightly petrified too!” said Laura.

Whitmore is best-known for presenting ITV2’s I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here Now and earlier this year she hosted the online coverage for BAFTAs and The BRITs Are Coming on ITV. Her first major presenting role was as an MTV VJ.
