BBC weather presenter Carol Kirkwood is the sixth celebrity to cha-cha their way on to the Strictly Come Dancing line-up.

Wearing a white feather boa and maroon dress, she was unveiled on BBC Breakfast.

"It feels really exciting, it doesn't even feel real yet, we haven't started dancing or training or anything yet," she said.

"I think all the dancers are amazing but I do have a soft spot for Aljaz Skorjanec."

When asked if she has a favourite dance, she said: "I can't dance, I've only done country Scottish dancing so I don't have a favourite dance, but I like the look of ballroom."

Celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott, broadcaster Jeremy Vine, former Coronation Street star Georgia May Foote, EastEnders actress Kellie Bright and newsreader Katie Derham have already been confirmed as her dance rivals.

The 13th series of Strictly Come Dancing begins on BBC1 in September.
