Strictly Come Dancing has unveiled celebrity number five, and you may recognise her voice from the radio.
Having been linked to BBC’s dancing competition series in the past, Capital Breakfast presenter Vick Hope is finally confirmed for the 2018 line-up.
The announcement was first made on this morning’s Capital Breakfast show (August 15).
“I’m so excited about being a contestant on this year’s Strictly,” she said.
“I’ve always been such a massive fan of the show, so it’s a huge honour to be part of this series. Dances like ballroom and Latin are totally outside my comfort zone, but I love dancing. It makes people happy – myself included.
“To be able to perform every Saturday is such an incredible opportunity – I couldn’t be looking forward to it anymore, and I will be throwing myself into it, working hard, and learning from the judges every week.”
Vick’s addition to the celebrity line-up comes after yesterday’s announcement that YouTuber Joe Sugg would be taking part. (If you don’t know who Joe is, you can learn about him and what he’s famous for right here.)

Steps singer Faye Tozer and Red Dwarf and Death in Paradise star Danny John-Jules were previously announced to be heading to the dance floor as well, while charity campaigner Katie Piper was the first celebrity officially revealed back at the start of the week.
This year’s professional dancer line-up has gone through a slight shake-up with three new people joining.
Graziano Di Prima, Johannes Radebe and Luba Mushtuk will be joining the returning pros.
Neil Jones, who has served as a pro dancer in the group routines in the past, is also thought to be getting a celebrity partner this year as a replacement for Brendan Cole, who didn’t have his contract renewed.
Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One in the autumn.
