Scottish comedian and broadcaster Susan Calman is the ninth celebrity contestant confirmed for the brand new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Susan said: “Being on Strictly is a dream come true. Finally I can reveal all the moves I’ve been practising in my kitchen to the nation.

“I am an enthusiastic home dancer and now on Saturday nights I’ll be dancing in other people’s homes in a (hopefully) entertaining way. I am terrified but excited to start my Strictly journey.”

Susan joins Aston Merrygold, Simon Rimmer, Joe McFadden, Reverend Richard Coles, Gemma Atkinson, Ruth Langsford, Davood Ghadami and Mollie King who have also been confirmed for the new series.

More celebrity contestants will be announced in due course, and The Extra hopes to bring you an exclusive interview with the lady herself.
