‘And don’t date those dancers!’

‘Tilly you’re incredibly brave. I’m terrified but so excited for you. Good luck!’
Matilda was announced to be taking part on today’s This Morning, and shared her fears at taking part with the presenters.
‘I’ve tried dancing before when I was much younger. Mum put us all in ballet but we weren’t very good so we were moved into football camp,’ she confessed.
‘So it’s definitely not my strength.’
The chef and TikTok favourite, who boasts a whopping 9.5million followers on the platform, added of the competition: ‘I’m so excited and grateful to be joining the Strictly family!
‘I’m always up for fun new challenges and this will be my biggest adventure yet! I’m going to put my heart and soul into this and can’t wait to get my dancing shoes on and show my Dad how it’s really done!
‘Bring on the glitz, glamour and sequins!’
Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One later this year.
