EastEnders star Tameka Empson is likely to be the biggest personality on this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.
After hitting the jackpot and scoring new pro Gorka Marquez as her partner, Tameka can’t wait to get in the ballroom and show off her moves.
“I think I’m a good mover. I’ve been to dance classes as child. I think Oti is my main competition LOL!”
She’s wanted to be on Strictly for a long time so this year she snapped up the opportunity. “Strictly has always been a dream of mine. So when the opportunity knocked, I answered the door and said ‘Welcome, come on in! I’ve been waiting for you’.”
Does she think she can impress the judges? “I’d like to impress all the judges, but I’d also like to impress Craig and make him smile.”
