Georgia May Foote has been confirmed for 'Strictly Come Dancing's thirteenth season
Georgia May Foote has been signed up for 'Strictly Come Dancing'.
The former 'Coronation Street' beauty has revealed she will be competing in the new series of the BBC One show alongside fellow stars Ainsley Harriott, Jeremy Vine and Kellie Bright.
Speaking on BBC Breakfast, she said: "It's such a relief. I've known since April. So it's great to be able to tell people.
"I did a bit of dancing before I started drama, but it was more free style like hip hop. So it wasn't as technical as ballroom."
The 24-year-old actress also revealed she had been given the code name 'Rapunzel' to avoid her name being leaked ahead of the big reveal, with only her close family being in on the secret.
Meanwhile, 'EastEnders' star Kellie admitted she was looking forward to starring on the show before everything goes "kaput".
She said: "One reason I wanted to do it is because I'm going to be 40 next year. I thought well actually at this point in my life to be the fittest I've ever been, or to certainly give it a good go, is a great thing and it will be challenging.
"I just want to see what my body can still do, you know what I mean, before it all goes kaput."
The thirteenth series of 'Strictly Come Dancing' will begin next month.
