Katie Piper is the first contestant announced for Strictly (Picture: Getty, BBC)Katie Piper has been confirmed as the first contestant for Strictly Come Dancing 2018.

The announcement was made on BBC Breakfast on Monday morning as the star appeared to discuss her fears for taking part.
‘It took a while to say yes because it’s something way out of my comfort zone,’ she confessed. ‘The only person I told was my husband and he thought I was joking.’

‘I’m worried I’ll be the first to go home!’ she laughed. ‘The fear I have is I don’t have the natural rhythm. But I like a challenge, anything I can’t do it inspires me to learn it.’

‘I hope to come away with a different kind of confidence in a different area of my life,’ she said of why she’s taking part. ‘I think it gives a wider message, my past is irrelevant, to be able to go forward and do these things is a bigger wider message.

‘That’s something I want to take forward, and it’s nice to be part of something so light-hearted!’

Strictly will start filming this month, with the rest of the names to be announced across the next two weeks ahead of the series’ red carpet launch at the end of the month.

Preparations for the series are already underway, with the pro dancers heading back into rehearsals last Monday.

This year’s line-up is tipped to include the likes of Corrie star Catherine Tyldesley, Capital DJ Vick Hope, Olympic diver Tom Daley, and Joe Sugg.

There’s no confirmed date for the series yet but the launch show – when the celebrities meet their pro partners for the first time – is likely to air in early September, with the main series beginning a few weeks later.
