EX-CORRIE star Kym Marsh has signed for Strictly Come Dancing. The Sun on Sunday revealed last month that the BBC Morning Live host, 46, was in talks for her ballroom debut.

And BBC sources yesterday said they were thrilled to have finally persuaded her to come on board. One source said: “We have been keen to sign Kym for a while and approached her many times in the past but it has never worked out. “When we approached her this year she was interested, which was very exciting for us. “As well as her presenting work, she is filming for Waterloo Road at the end of the year, so she had to consider it carefully.
