Charlotte will be the fourth member of the Good Morning Britain team to try her luck on the show, following in the footsteps of Richard, Kate Garraway and Susanna Reid.

Contestants and fans alike have long joked about a curse being attached to the show for couples as many who have strutted their stuff in the ballroom have ended up splitting with their partners after appearing on the series - often to couple up with their professional dance partner. I love this show and have followed it from the beginning, so being able to be a part of it is just a dream come true for me - I still can't believe it!

When asked if she's looking forward to showing off her moves, The X Factor star Alexandra admitted: "I'm a singer not a dancer!"

Joe McFadden, Reverend Richard Coles, Gemma Atkinson, Ruth Langsford, Davood Ghadami have also been confirmed for the new series.
