Daisy Lowe is the newest celebrity to join Strictly Come Dancing
Model Daisy Lowe is the eighth celebrity to join Strictly Come Dancing 2016.
The international fashion model, who has walked catwalks in London, Milan and New York, said she was “so excited” and also “terrified”.
Speaking to the official Strictly Come Dancing blog, Lowe said: “I love dancing so much… But I’ve never done any ballroom dancing before this… I’ve always loved the show and I can’t wait to be part of it”.
She confessed to jumping at the opportunity to take part in it when the offer arrived.
“My family and friends and I adore Strictly, so when the chance came up to take part – I jumped at it! I am itching to get started and am so looking forward to learning a new skill.”
Lowe will join Ed Balls, Will Young, Laura Whitmore, Ore Oduba, Melvin Odoom and Danny Mac on the fourteenth series of the reality dancing competition.
Although Lowe is used to all eyes being focused on her, she admitted Strictly was “completely different” to her previous work.
However, when she dances she’ll be looking to impress more than just the Strictly judges – her grandmother is apparently an avid fan of the show.
Lowe said: “I would love to make it into the final… My Grandma has watched every episode for the past 14 years and I know that if I get kicked out, she won’t watch it!”
