Abbey Clancy has become the latest star to sign up to Strictly Come Dancing, according to reports.

The model and wife of footballer Peter Crouch has done a deal to appear on the dance show, the Daily Mirror said.

She will apparently be moving down south for the contest and is reported to be house-hunting with husband Peter.

A source said: “Abbey is really excited to be appearing on Strictly. All her family and friends watch it and Peter is being very supportive – he can’t wait to see Abbey in her slinky, sparkly costumes.

“Obviously living in Cheshire is not ideal when contestants have to train at least five times a week. She and Peter are, therefore, looking to rent a place in London and have their eye on a gorgeous £3million pad on a very desirable road.

“Abbey’s already in fantastic shape, but is looking forward to learning new moves and getting even fitter. She’ll be a fantastic contestant.”

The 27-year-old mum of one will join Desperate Housewives star Teri Hatcher and Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington in this year’s competition.

Great British Bake Off king Paul Hollywood was rumoured to be taking part, but is said to have pulled out because of a clash of schedules.

Professional dancers Aliona Vilani, Vincent Simone, Flavia Cacace and Erin Boag will not be returning this series.
