NEWSFLASH! Kate Silverton is our next Strictly star
We’re more used to seeing Kate Silverton behind news desk than on the dancefloor, but she’s beyond excited to be trying something new like Strictly.
“I love dancing and I love the joyfulness of the programme itself, so I am really looking forward to doing something I have never done before, which is to learn how to dance, take part in an entertainment show and generally immerse myself in a very different world to one I am used to!” she said.
The accomplished journalist and presenter has been one of BBC’s main news anchors for many years, as well as fronting prime time shows Panorama, Big Cat Live, My Family at War and Propertywatch. She’s also bravely ventured onto the frontline in Afghanistan and Iraq to report the reality of war firsthand.
Outside of her epic broadcasting career, Kate has a BSc in Psychology, specialising in child development – something the mother of two is now revisiting as she’s training to be a children’s and trauma counsellor. Let’s hope she has time to fit in her all-important Strictly training too!
Kate’s next to be joining the Strictly 2018 line-up, along with Katie Piper, Faye Tozer, Danny John-Jules, Joe Sugg, Vick Hope, Graeme Swann, Dr Ranj Singh, Stacey Dooley and Ashley Roberts. Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to make sure you don’t miss any of the remaining celeb reveals!
