Strictly Come Dancing’s sixth star named as BBC presenter

The One Show: Angela Scanlon asks Ronan about his tattoos

She admitted: “I’m terrified, I’m excited and I have so many questions.

“Will they make me tan? How itchy are sequins?! Do they do flesh-coloured sports bras?

“Well – there’s only one way to find out, right!? Now I’m panicking a bit… but also secretly thrilled about the prospect of all that glitter. Let’s go!”

Angela is an Irish Television presenter for the BBC and RTÉ, hosting the hugely-successful interior design show Your Home Made Perfect on BBC Two.
