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.
She also took part in Celebrity Wife Swap with former Strictly Come Dancing contestant Paul Daniels and his wife Debbie McGee.
The full line-up of 15 celebrities will be confirmed on Monday 2 September in a special edition of BBC1's The One Show.

The one-off 20-minute programme, which promises "all the glitz and glamour of the Hollywood style red carpet" with interviews with all the contestants, will be made available on the BBC iPlayer and via the BBC red button interactive service on Wednesday 4 September.
