Louise is announced for Strictly Come Dancing 2016

Louise Redknapp is thrilled to share the news that she has been announced as the sixth contestant for Strictly Come Dancing 2016!

The announcement was made today (September 15th) on BBC Radio 2’s Steve Wright in the Afternoon.

Louise joins the already announced Ed Balls, Will Young, Laura Whitmore, Ore Oduba and Melvin Odoom on the BBC One show’s fourteenth series, with many more contestants still to come.

Speaking with the BBC, Louise said “I’ve sung in front of crowds of thousands before but the idea of stepping out onto that famous dance floor with a world class professional dancer gives me butterflies just thinking about it! I’m a big fan of the show and am definitely going to go out there and give it 100% as I want to make my boys proud.”
