She said: ‘I’ve considered doing Strict for years, but the timing never worked out. I’m so glad they have this year!

“I’m a huge fan of the show and can’t believe I’m going to go from home in my pajamas to actually dance in front of the judges in a glittery dress, it’s unreal!”

She said, “I was joking with him and I said ‘Were you on Strictly because you never mentioned it!'” I think he always asked me if I was going to do it, and he kept talking about it for months to come once, and of course I didn’t speak to him and will probably get a message later that says “you never told me!”

Through speaking. Zoom, Kym revealed that her parents were both hiding behind a curtain while she took part in the interview, and they were even more excited when they saw her hit the dance floor.

The actress, who rose to fame as the star of the band Hearsay, added that she is open to learning the new dance styles as they will be a stark contrast to her pop star days.

She continued: ‘I just really want to learn to watch, I danced before when I was a little girl, and when I was in Hearsay, my husband is very excited that I can teach him, so we can do it when we go to the balls go.

“All of them really, just to learn how to dance well would be great.”

When asked if she will be afraid of the harsh criticism from Craig Revel Horwood and the rest of the judges, Kym added: ‘I was judged by Nasty Nigel in Popstars, remember, he used to be the bad guy!

“These are the people I really respect, this is what they do, I’ll just have to suck it up I guess, you just have to take it on the chin.”
