On Wednesday, the fashion guru had shared a cryptic message on Twitter, which read: "I have some amazing exciting news… but I can't tell you until Thursday! This is gonna do my head in!" Then, on Thursday morning ahead of the ITV daytime show, Strictly's official Twitter account tweeted: "Turn on @thismorning tomorrow to find out who is #Strictly celebrity number seven - Goats. All will be revealed.."
