Vanessa Feltz has been unveiled as the first contestant for the next series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The DJ and TV presenter revealed that she is to star in the BBC1 show, which starts on Saturday 7 September, on the BBC Radio 2 breakfast show.

"I've got sequins on my lingerie and I intend to wear nothing else until I get turfed out," she said, speaking with Zoe Ball, who also hosts Strictly spin-off show It Takes Two. "I'm inordinately excited."

When asked which professional dancer she wanted to be partnered with, The 51-year old said: "I'd like someone patient. Someone virile, oozing testosterone, but patient. I don't want anyone who shouts at me or gets cross. That would be just terrible."

Feltz has previously appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, as well as Celebrity Fit Club. »
