Sky Sports presenter Kirsty and former Olympian Iwan appeared on ‘The One Show’ on Thursday (27 August) to reveal that they would be competing on this year’s series of the BBC ballroom show.
Iwan also said “I’m extremely excited and scared at the thought of taking part in ‘Strictly’. I love watching the show and I can’t believe I’m swapping my running spikes for dancing shoes. I used to be quick at running around the track and I’m just hoping my dance partner doesn’t leave me behind.”

‘Strictly Come Dancing’ returns to BBC One on Saturday 5 September at 7.15pm, where the celebrities will be paired up with the show’s professional dancers.
Current show champion Caroline Flack will also return to perform her salsa routine, while Jess Glynne and Gregory Porter will also be providing musical entertainment.
The couples will then have around three weeks to train before the competition begins properly later in September.
