Now rumours are swirling that her male rival Davood Ghadami will also be competing on the hit dancing show.

The "EastEnders" hunk - who plays Kush Kazemi in the soap - has reportedly joined this year's line-up of celebrities vying to win the Glitterball Trophy, and show bosses are said to be "delighted" he is joining the programme.

I've always watched it with my family and it looks so fun. "I'm very competitive so watch out, other contestants".

"I told Frankie (Bridge) and when I called her she was driving and she was so excited she had to pull in!" "She was so excited. The other girls don't know... well they do now", she told Grimshaw. It will be the first series without head judge Len Goodman, who retired in 2016 and has been replaced by Latin Ballroom champion Shirley Ballas.

There's also X Factor victor Alexandra Burke, Paralympian Ellie Simmonds, Robot Wars host Angela Scanlon, Bros singer Matt Goss, comic Joel Dommett and marathon runner Paula Radcliffe.
