Sunetra Sarker is confirmed for Strictly Come Dancing

Casualty star Sunetra Sarker has been confirmed as the fourth female celebrity for Strictly Come Dancing 2014.

The actress - who plays Zoe Hanna in the medical drama - will join The Saturdays' Frankie Bridge, tennis player Andy Murray's mother Judy Murray and This Morning showbiz presenter Alison Hammond.

Sarker, who has also appeared in Doctor Who and Brookside, commented: "I don't quite know what I've let myself in for... I'm in total denial! But the chance to swap my stethoscope for sequins was just too tempting. I am very excited to be part of the Strictly team!"

As for the men, last Friday Mark Wright became the third male celebrity confirmed for Strictly, joining Blue's Simon Webbe and rugby player Thom Evans.

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One in the autumn.
