Ruth Langsford is the third celebrity contestant confirmed for the brand new series of Strictly Come Dancing. The 15th series of the BAFTA award-winning entertainment show produced by BBC Studios will return in the autumn on BBC One putting the sparkle back into Saturday and Sunday nights.
Ruth says: “I have dreamt about doing Strictly for so long, I can’t quite believe my dream has come true! The sum of my dance experience is throwing a few shapes at a party, I’ve never had a dance lesson in my life. Without doubt it will be the scariest yet most exciting thing I’ve ever done. It’ll be a welcome change worrying about my next hot move instead of my next hot flush!”
Ruth Langsford is a host on two of ITV’s popular daytime shows Loose Women and This Morning – the latter she presents with her husband Eamonn Holmes. In addition to her daytime presenting roles, Ruth has a regular primetime series with Eamonn for Channel 5 called How The Other Half Lives currently in its third series. She also has a passion for fashion and has recently started hosting her own show Ruth Langsford’s Fashion Edit on QVC. Ruth is an Ambassador for the Alzheimer’s Society and she and Eamonn live in London with their son Jack and beloved dog, Maggie.
The news was revealed today (Wednesday 9 August) on This Morning on ITV.
Ruth Langsford joins Davood Ghadami and Mollie King who have also been confirmed for the new series. More celebrity contestants will be announced in due course.
