Strictly Come Dancing has announced Good Morning Britain presenter Ranvir Singh and BBC Radio 1's Clara Amfo for the 2020 series.
The duo are the fourth and fifth celebrities confirmed for this year's show, after Caroline Quentin, Jason Bell, and Max George were unveiled last night (September 1).
"The initial feeling of being confirmed for Strictly is one of complete terror," Ranvir said. "Feels like embarking on a rollercoaster, where you really want to do it but you are equally scared. Hopefully after the first dance I will feel exhilarated rather than sick!"
When asked by co-host Susanna Reid whether or not she would have to go into isolation with her dance partner, Ranvir said on today's Good Morning Britain: "I couldn't have done that.
"I've got my son and I've got a mum in my house... They have asked me. They know my situation and so therefore they've accepted it. Of course, the kids go back to school this week, so the country's changing anyway.
"The truth is that we've still got a long time before the show goes on air."
Clara's announcement was made on Radio 1 Breakfast with Greg James.
"As we know this year has been a real challenge, and escapism through dancing is something I know we all enjoy, so to be taught by a pro and live a fantasy is something that I can't wait to fully embrace," she said.
"See you on the dancefloor!"
It's unclear at this stage how social distancing restrictions will affect the show, but Rylan Clark-Neal – who co-hosts It Takes Two – recently said that he was "100% confident" that viewers won't be disappointed.
"There is no way Strictly would go on air if it couldn't be the Strictly everyone loves," he commented.
Strictly Come Dancing will return for an all-new series later this year on BBC One.
