Scott Mills has confirmed he will be competing for the coveted glitterball trophy on the upcoming series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' alongside a host of other celebrities
Scott Mills has confirmed he is to compete on 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The TV and radio presenter made the announcement while speaking to Strictly judge Craig Revel Horwood on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show, surprising his fellow presenter Chris Stark with the announcement.
He said: "My listeners are so used to me playing pranks that they're probably going to think this is just another one. It's not, I really am doing this! I'm honoured to be part of the biggest show on television and am hoping this could be the start of a brand new skill for me.
"When I was younger, my Nan danced the foxtrot and waltz and it would be great for me to learn those dances, but I will be out of my comfort zone. Whatever happens, I'm really looking forward to the weekly fake tans!"
Scott is the tenth celebrity confirmed for the annual BBC One ballroom dancing competition and will go up against The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford, Tennis ace Andy Murray's mother Judy and former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star Mark Wright.
'This Morning' reporter Alison Hammond, Thom Evans, Simon Webbe, 'Casualty' star Sunetra Sarker, EastEnders' Jake Wood and wildlife presenter Steve Backshall will also compete for the glitterball trophy alongside the remaining five celebrities, who are yet to be announced.
