Anastacia has become the tenth celebrity confirmed for this year's 'Strictly Come Dancing'

Anastacia has been confirmed for 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'I'm Outta Love' hitmaker has become the tenth celebrity to join the line-up of this year's Ballroom and Latin Show and has admitted she's terrified about hitting the dance floor.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2's 'The Chris Evans Breakfast Show' on Friday (19.08.16), she said: "I'm a total '10' on the level of excitement and definitely a '10' scared! Seriously though, I can't wait to get started."

And, although she spends the majority of her time across the pond working on her music, the 47-year-old singer has always "dreamt" about taking part in the BBC One show.

She explained: "Taking part in 'Strictly...' is a dream. It's such a new challenge for me I've never done anything like this before so I hope I pull it off!

"I've got a lot of training to do before I'm twinkle toes so I'm eager to get my partner and get going! I'm ready!"

The blonde beauty - who had a double mastectomy last year following two battles with breast cancer - is no stranger to booty shaking and hip snaking as she's taken part in plenty of music videos throughout her career.

It's believed bosses of 'Strictly...' have had their eye on Anastacia since she performed at the show's special in the world famous Tower Ballroom in Blackpool last year.

Meanwhile, despite her dance experience, it certainly won't be a walk in the park for the star as she's up against the likes of Daisy Lowe, Laura Whitmore, Louise Redknapp, Will Young, former 'Hollyoaks' hunk Danny Mac and Ed Balls.

The rest of the official line-up is set to be released in due course.
