She's been playing the biggest hits across the country, but how will Vick Hope deal with doing the cha-cha? You can find out as she's been confirmed as a contestant on this year's Strictly Come Dancing.
Vick Hope - who we're pretty sure you'll recognise from Capital - has been confirmed as the fifth celebrity contestant on the brand new series of Strictly Come Dancing, so expect to see her tango and jive her way onto your screens very soon.
She joins the likes of Joe Sugg and Steps' Faye Tozer on the sixteenth series of the BAFTA-winning entertainment show.
On Wednesday, 15 August, Roman Kemp, Vick Hope and Sonny Jay announced that their favourite Geordie gal was taking part in Strictly, and Vick said "I'm so excited about being a contestant on this year’s Strictly. I’ve always been such a massive fan of the show so it’s a huge honour to be part of this series.
"Dances like Ballroom and Latin are totally outside my comfort zone but I love dancing, it makes people happy - myself included - so to be able to perform every Saturday is such an incredible opportunity and I genuinely couldn’t be more looking forward to throwing myself into it, working hard and learning from the judges every week," continued the 28-year-old presenter.
Well, we've seen your dances in the studio every time we play Little Mix, so we have no doubt you'll nail it, Vick.
