Alison Hammond has been confirmed for the next series of 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The 'This Morning' presenter has been announced as the third celebrity set to compete on this year's edition of the ballroom contest, after describing herself as "absolutely overjoyed" as she revealed the news on the ITV breakfast show today (19.08.14).
She said: "I am ready to immerse myself in glitter and hard work, with a dash of fun along the way!"
The official announcement follows reports last month that she had already been fitted for her costume and was "genuinely delighted" at the opportunity.
A source recently said: "She came in for her fitting last week and can't wait to get started ... Alison's personality is infectious and the bosses are sure she will be popular. She has the kind of charisma and humour that people love.
"She was genuinely delighted to be asked to join. There is no doubt she will throw everything into her dance training. She could be one of this year's real surprises."
The TV star joins The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford and tennis coach Judy Murray - the mother of British star Andy.
