American model and actress Jerry Hall is no stranger to showbiz after becoming one of the top supermodels of the 70s and 80s.
Her celebrity status rocketed even further after gracing magazine covers such as Vogue and high profile relationships with rock royalty.
She has gone on to become an actress starring in films such as Batman and on stage in The Graduate and High Society. As she leaves the catwalk for the dancefloor will she captivate the fearsome judges with her Texan charm?
What are you most looking forward to about taking part in Strictly?
I’m looking forward to learning all those wonderful dances – the Waltz, the American Smooth, and especially the Tango - it’s such a sexy dance, so passionate. It’s all going to be so exciting.
What are you looking for from your professional dance partner?
I hope my dance partner will be fun yet firm and tall enough to lead me! As the youngest and tallest of five girls, back in Texas, I always had to take the lead and be the guy, so being led around the ballroom will be a nice experience for me.
Will you get any hints or tips from famous friends who have taken part in Strictly before?
I’ve spoken to some friends who have appeared on the show in the past, and they’ve all said what great fun the whole thing is, totally engrossing… and VERY hard work!
