Former Pussycat Dolls member Ashley Roberts is the latest celebrity name to reportedly be added to the line-up for the next run of BBC show Strictly Come Dancing.

And the 36-year-old singer is expected to be one of the favourites to win this year's Glitterball Trophy on one of the British broadcaster's most-popular TV shows.

A source told the Daily Mirror: "Ashley is already a hot favourite because of her dance experience with the Dolls as well as having trained as a dancer.

"Although she might not have done much ballroom or Latin, being able to pick up choreography quickly as well as her rhythm is sure to give her an edge."

As well as her dancing days with the Pussycat Dolls, Roberts studied modern dance in California and featured as a backing dancer in numerous music videos, including Pink's Trouble.

She also appeared on I'm A Celebrity . . . Get Me Out Of Here! in 2012, and featured as a judge on Dancing On Ice.
