"Strictly is such a far cry from my day job," Zara said on BBC Radio 1.

"I've spent the last three years making documentaries in a very small team, but Strictly is live. You cannot make a mistake, you have 'one take' only.

"This is just so far out of my comfort zone. I've spent the whole of my 20s pushing myself out of my comfort zone, but this is the pinnacle now.

"I have zero dance experience. I don't even dance in a nightclub – I'm that petrified of dancing."

Zara recently looked raring to go as she rocked up to Strictly training in a tiny pair of shorts and trainers.

The star will be competing against Family Fortunes star Les Dennis, former Coronation Street star Ellie Leach, EastEnders actor Bobby Brazier, former EastEnders star Nigel Harman and Waterloo Road star Adam Thomas.

The Strictly line-up also includes Paralympic champion Jody Cundy and former British number one tennis player Annabel Croft as well as BBC Asian Network's Breakfast Show host Nikita Kanda, actress Amanda Abbington, Bad Education star Layton Williams and broadcaster Angela Rippon.
