Judy Murray

Judy Murray has been confirmed as the second Strictly Come Dancing 2014 celebritiy.

She'll be swapping her tennis racquet for dancing shoes as she is confirmed as the second celebrity taking part in the new series of Strictly Come Dancing.

Judy made the announcement this morning via the official @bbcstrictly Twitter account, posing with one of the famous Strictly score paddles.

Judy said: “I'm a huge Strictly Come Dancing fan but a total armchair dancer. It's going to be a big challenge for me and for whoever has to dance with me but I absolutely can't wait to get started!"

Tennis coach Judy is a self-confessed Strictly fan and is best known for being mother and coach to two very high achieving tennis players; 2013 Wimbledon champion Andy Murray and Wimbledon Mixed Doubles champion Jamie Murray.

Judy joins The Saturdays' Frankie Bridge on this year's CONFIRMED line up, with Frankie having announced her role in the show on BBC Breakfast last week.

Names rumoured to be joining them include Xtra Factor's Caroline Flack, TOWIE's Mark Wright, singer Pixie Lott and hard man Ross Kemp.

More celebs tipped for the latest run this autumn are Masterchef's Greg Wallace, hunky rugby star Thom Evans and This Morning's Alison Hammond.
