The second contestant for the 2018 Strictly Come Dancing line-up was announced on Monday evening during The One Show, and we can't wait! Steps star Faye Tozer revealed that they will be putting on their dancing shoes ahead of next month's new series of the popular BBC One dance show. Speaking of their decision to hosts Alex Jones and Matt Baker, they said that they were looking forward to dressing up and despite being one fifth of the popular nineties band, she wasn't as confident as people may think. "Even though I have some experience I don't have any ballroom experience," she added. Alex also joked that Faye might have to dance to Tragedy during her time on the show. Faye will be joining a host of famous faces who will be competing in the dance contest in a bid to win over the judges and viewers at home.

The professional dancers have already been in training since the beginning of the month, with a few new additions to the team. With Brendan Cole and Chloe Hewitt no longer taking part, new dancers Graziano Di Prima, Johannes Radebe and Luba Mushtuk have been announced as new additions – meaning the total number of professional dancers will be higher than any previous year. Louise Rainbow, who is executive producer on Strictly, said at the time: "A huge thank you goes to Brendan from all of us for 15 amazing series of Strictly. We wish him all the very best with his future projects. We would also like to thank Chloe and wish her well."
