It was recently confirmed Ashley Roberts would be taking part in the next series of Strictly Come Dancing, alongside Joe Sugg and Katie Piper.

But it seems as though the Pussycat Dolls singer is already a little annoyed at the BBC show over the way they announced her appearance on Twitter.

A little awkward considering she hasnt actually stepped foot on a dancefloor yet…

Quoting the shows tweet, the 36-year-old wrote: En route to @achrisevans Heard ya mentioned my name already. Why did I have to get up so early!?!

So… the pussycats out the bag!! Ahhh sooo beyond excited for this adventure!!! CANT WAIT!! #strictly, she later added.

The news was confirmed by the official BBC Strictly Twitter account, who posted a lyric to her song, When I Grow Up.

Side note: That song was a complete banger!

When I grow up I wanna be famous, I wanna be a star, I wanna be on #Strictly, it read.

What Ashley Roberts was (probably) singing before joining our 2018 line-up, right @ImAshleyRoberts?
