Strictly Come Dancing 2014 line up: Frankie Bridge wants to make Blackpool

Frankie Bridge

Frankie Bridge has revealed she's set her goal on making it to Blackpool on Strictly Come Dancing 2014.

The 25 year-old is no stranger to the spotlight, having shot to fame at the age of 12 with the young pop group S Club Juniors.

But this is something quite different to all of the usual singing and dancing that Frankie's more used to.

"I’m actually starting to get a bit nervous now," she said. "Now you start meeting everyone, it seems so much fun that I don’t want to go out – I want to stay in as long as possible.

"I just love it. I watch it with my mum – all my family love it. For me, dancing is the best bit of what I do. I just love dancing. To learn something I’ve never learned before and get to do it every weekend – it’s just fun."

Frankie insisted she wasn't competitive, joking "I’m not going trip people up and push them over!" but The Saturdays singer added: "I think it’ll be a shame if I don’t get to do Blackpool"

Frankie, who is married to footballer Wayne Bridge and has a baby son called Parker, went on to say of her prospective pro partner: "I want someone who won’t make it too hard but I do want to be pushed.

"I like to be pushed but I want someone who’s able to have a laugh. I laugh at myself a lot."

She added: "I’m confident that I’ll be able to pick it up but to pull it off – that’s completely different."

Strictly Come Dancing kicks off on September 7 on BBC One.
