The cryptic star, who appeared on the 2019 series of Strictly Come Dancing, has been tipped as the favourite to take over as team captain from Holly Willoughby on Celebrity Juice. However, the 36-year-old didn't drop any clues in her latest Instagram post. Instead the former Coronation Street actress uploaded a glamorous selfie showing herself wearing a sheer black top underneath a black jacket.
