"I'm such a huge fan of Strictly!

," the singer said. "I've always wanted to be a part of the show – it looks so much fun and the costumes are just gorgeous. "Like so many little girls, I used to take dance lessons when I was in primary school and I really love dancing, but this is going to be so different from anything I have done with The Saturdays.

I just can't wait to get started!

As one fifth of a chart-topping girl group, Frankie is

used to being in the spotlight

cheering her on each week

will be her Saturdays bandmates,
