Girls Aloud member Kimberley Walsh has signed on the dotted line to appear in the upcoming season of Strictly Come Dancing.

A tweet from the official Twitter page of the dancing show read: "Kimberley Walsh joins Strictly Come Dancing! A rumour no longer just the 'sound of the underground'."

The singer updated her own Twitter page with pictures of her practising with professional dancer Anton Du Beke, though it remains unclear who she is partnered with.

On Friday evening, Westlife's Nicky Byrne was confirmed as a competitor in the series. Actress Dani Harmer and TV presenter Richard Arnold have also been confirmed.

The series kicks off next Saturday, September 15, on BBC One at 6:30pm.
