From Shrek to Strictly: Girls Aloud's Kimberley Walsh joins Strictly Come Dancing line-up

By Louise Saunders

PUBLISHED: 06:55, 27 August 2012 | UPDATED: 09:23, 27 August 2012

She's one-fifth of one of Britain's biggest girl bands and has had a starring role in a West End musical.

And Kimberley Walsh looks set to add another string to her bow as she prepares to join the line-up for the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing.

The Girls Aloud singer has reportedly signed up to appear in the next season of the BBC One show, which hits screens next month.

Hitting the dancefloor: Kimberley Walsh has reportedly signed up for the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing

A source told the Daily Mirror: 'When we heard she was interested we were thrilled. Now everyone's dying to see her moves. She's a great name to have got.'

 

The 30-year-old Shrek actress joins the likes of Olympic heroes Sir Steve Redgrave and Victoria Pendleton, as well as Westlife singer Nicky Byrne and cricketer Michael Vaughan, who are also believed to be appearing in the celebrity dance competition.

From the kitchen to the dancefloor: Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood will also appear in the upcoming series of the BBC One show

Meanwhile, Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood is thought to have signed up to the upcoming series of Strictly.

A source told The Sun: 'The Great British Bake Off has been a huge ratings success for the BBC and we are delighted that Paul is now on board.

'He has a reputation for being a tough cookie and it will be interesting to see how he copes once he is out of his comfort zone.'

Olympians: Victoria Pendleton and Sir Steve Redgrave are rumoured to be among those appearing in this year's Strictly

Former supermodel Jerry Hall, ex-EastEnders star Sid Owen, and TV presenters Sian Williams and Fern Britton are also thought to have signed up to appear in Strictly.

Meanwhile, a host of Olympians have also made it clear they would like to appear on the Saturday night show, including swimmer Rebecca Adlington and gymnast Beth Tweddle.

Preparing for the cha cha: Jerry Hall (L) and Fern Britton are set to don their dancing shoes next month

Cycling gold medallist Victoria Pendleton said last week: 'The idea of being very glamorous, it definitely appeals to me.

'After wearing Lycra suits and tracksuits for so long and not a lot of make-up I think, yeah, that would be good fun.’

The Strictly Come Dancing launch show will air on September 15 and the first live show is on October 5.

Last year's series was won by McFly drummer Harry Judd.

well thess you get your wish (only prson I like in the lineup)

Loathe Steve Redgrave -great olympiann but too full of himself and bores me to death

thinnk it is unfair for Kimberly to be in it IMO as she was a ballroom and latin competitor a very def advantage even though it was when she was a kid

I can't stand big-head Redgrave. Rowed up and down a man made water way... Hardly Moby Dick was it? I'd like to see him in some of the North Atlantic seas my hubby sailed in! I wouldn't mind if he shut up and kept his head down. He could take a few lessons in modesty from Brad Wiggins could'nt he?

Kimberley will probably win, bet she doesn't get Anton the berk as her partner.

I'm not a fan of Fern's either

ha..ha.. want the berk to get Kimberley!!!!! she'd get well peed of with him i imagine!!!!!
 
I like Sian, and Vicky Pendleton. Cricketers tend to well don't they??(Michael Vaughn)
 
Who on earth will dance with the leggy blond texan now Ian Waite no longer dancing tho??
surely a case to bring him back!!!!!!!
 
not really paid much attention to Steve Redgrave in the past, now you mention it , does have a bit of a smug face!!Whistle
 
I don't like Fern Britton , so if Kimberley doesn't get the berk, give him to her.... he loves the TV sofa couch people doesn't he?????, don't give them to Brendan (after Fiona) he'll lose it!!!!
altho isn't Brendan fairly tall????iE over  6FT???)so he could have Jerry, and after the farce last year with LULU, gotta be a better partner!!LOL
 
Just bought my 14 year old daughter two inch heels, that makes her 6foot now,  good job men growing taller these days!!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Pasha gets Kimberley. Good looking pair.
And it seems to be a trend for new pros to have two good partners in a row.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.

hate it when the decision on who wins a show like this is based on how good looking they are far too many of these shows are based on tthat - whenn it should come down to dancing - kim may have the advantage of being a child competitor but like Holy Valance she does not have the likeability factor that will make people vote.

It has to be said that the people who have won in recent years are not as good imo  - and alot of that is down to the trading down of the professional dancers from those who were world class competition dancers to those of rerasonable talent chosen more for looks than their dancing credentials.

whilst I am in full flow if I want to watch the American style of dancing some of which does not bear any resemblence of how the dance should be I watch DWTS I dont really want to watch a watered down versionn on SCD - for this the dancers should be chosen for their dance credentials, ie   trained in the standard style

I forgot about Pasha, bet he gets Vicky!! think she's fairly petite isn't she.
Artem could get Kimberley I reckon 
 
Fern, will have to get one of the bigger/taller guys, how tall is Robin??? (she'll still need a strong man, despiter the gastric band!!!LOLOuch- like i can talk, lol)
 
Steve Redgrave, also being a 'tall-un' will probably get the Aussie Sheila!!!

Kimberley and Vickie both around 5ft 5 so about 5ft 7 in those high heels they dance in, was'nt Pasha and Artem around  5ft 9 so they would be OK, I bet Jerry Hall who is about 5ft 11 will get Brendan as he is the tallest.  Fern britton is pretty tall at 5ft 7 so could get Anton.  Sian Williams is about 5ft 2 so will probably get the little Italian (forgotten his name already)!!Confused

I think you're right Jo. I hadn't noticed that. I'm a massive Pasha fan btw
