TV's Harmer takes to Strictly floor

Children's TV star Dani Harmer will be trying to impress Strictly head judge Len Goodman

Children's TV star Dani Harmer is to join the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Her involvement emerged after a touring musical in which she was due to star, called Disco Inferno, was axed.

Dani - who is known to young fans for her role in children's drama Tracey Beaker - had previously appeared in Let's Dance For Comic Relief.

She and dance partner Tyger Drew-Honey reached the final of the show in March.

Her musical - which also featured ex-EastEnder Sam Attwater and Javine Hylton - was pulled after a week's run in Malvern, prior to hitting the road.

She told fans on Twitter: "I would just like to send a massive apology to everyone that has booked tickets to see Disco Inferno! Unfortunately the tour has been cancelled.

"Looking forward to my next adventure. Can't wait to tell you all what I'm doing next! So excited."

It was later confirmed that she would be on Strictly, which returns to BBC One on September 15.

Also known to be taking part in the next series are TV presenter Johnny Ball and former England cricketer Michael Vaughan.

Putting money into a savings account gives you the freedom to travel, write and study. Don't be ashamed of your needs; they encompass your personality.More
