Revealing she was 'terrified', Kaye said: "It's me. I can't dance at all. I've got two left feet."

"I can think of a million reasons not to do this but I thought, 'am I going to be sitting here at the end of September thinking , do you know what? Why didn't you just give that a go?'

"I'm 60 at the end of this year and I think, 'why not?'

"I can't make that much of a fool of myself."

Kaye broke the news of her involvement to her fellow panellists Sunetra Sarker, Carol McGiffin and Denise Welch.

They were later joined on video-link by Nadia Sawalha, who revealed she was 'so proud' of her colleague and friend.

Nadia said: "Oh my god, I feel emotional.

"Honestly, I could cry. It's amazing that you're going to do it because let's face it, you can't dance but that's what we like on Strictly.

"We like to see somebody learn to dance – you're going to be incredible."

Kaye's involvement was teased earlier in the show and a number of ballroom dancers appeared live in studio.

Former professional dancer Anton Du Beke will return to the Strictly judging line-up this year alongside Motsi Mabuse, Shirley Ballas and Craig Revel Horwood.

Strictly Come Dancing will return to BBC One next month.
