Georgia May Foote has been announced for Strictly Come Dancing 2015.

The former Coronation Street actress is the fourth celebrity to be revealed for 2015's ballroom competition, and she joins Kellie Bright, Ainsley Harriott and Jeremy Vine.

The 24-year-old couldn't hide her excitement when her name was unveiled.

“I am so excited to be part of Strictly 2015! It is something I have always wanted to take part in and now I just can’t wait to get started! I love dancing and I love a challenge so this is the perfect experience for me,” Georgia gushed on BBC Breakfast today.

The actress started her TV career in 2004, appearing in everything from Life on Mars to Heartbeat.

Her casting as Katy Armstrong in Corrie cemented her TV status and she played the part for four years, only leaving the cobbles earlier this year.

Talking about Strictly, Georgia admits she's so glad the cat is finally out the bag.

"It's such a relief. I've known since April. So it's great to be able to tell people," she smiled.

This isn't her first foray on to the dance floor, but she's used to a more street vibe than sequins and foxtrotting.

"I did a bit of dancing before I started drama, but it was more free style like hip-hop. So it wasn't as technical as ballroom," she revealed.
