Strictly Come Dancing has welcomed Loose Women’s Kaye Adams to its line-up, with the broadcaster and journalist the fourth celebrity to be announced for the 2022 series.
Kaye announced live on air during the ITV panel show that she would be dusting off her dancing shoes and showing off her moves in the iconic ballroom.
The Scot joins a line-up which already includes Two Pints Of Lager And A Packet Of Crisps star Will Mellor, as well as former Coronation Street star Kym Marsh and Radio 2’s Richie Anderson.
As she prepares to dust off her dancing shoes here’s what you need to know about Kaye.
Who is Kaye Adams?
Kaye, 59, is a TV presenter and journalist who is originally from Grangemouth in Scotland.
After beginning her career in local TV, at Central Television and the news programme Scotland Today, Kaye joined the panel of Loose Women, having been a part of the show on and off since 1999.
However, the Scot did leave the show for several years to join The Wright Stuff from 2007 to 2012, before returning to the panel in 2013.
She also hosts the breakfast show on BBC Radio Scotland during the week.
Her other TV appearances have included This Morning, ITV Weekend Live and daytime show The People Versus, as well as being a guest host on Have I Got News For You.
Kaye admitted she was ‘terrified’ at the thought of her upcoming Strictly appearance and added: ‘I said I wanted to make the last year of my fifties memorable and I can’t think of a better way of doing it than showing the world my two left feet. Pray for me!’
Who is Kaye Adams’ partner?
Kaye has been in a relationship with tennis coach Ian Campbell for 26 years.
The couple are parents to two daughters, 20-year-old Charley, and Bonnie, who was born in 2007.
Although they have never married, Kaye has previously said that she would say yes if Ian proposed.
‘When we first met Ian was in his late 20s working as a tennis coach, spending half his life in Italy and half in Scotland, and he was not a man going to settle down,’ Kaye told the Mirror in 2016.
‘It was just a relationship that carried on and carried on, very happily, and maybe we just passed the point of getting married. But if Ian wants to pop the question and I get a decent ring and a good holiday out of it I wouldn’t say no.’
