Popstar Frankie Bridge is excited for this year's Strictly Come Dancing 2016 Christmas special.

The singer is one of six former celebrity contestants who will be back for the one-off festive special on Christmas Day.

Frankie, who made the finals in 2014, will be joined by Olympian and presenter Denise Lewis, TV presenter Gethin Jones, Writer and actress Pamela Stephenson, Celebrity chef Ainsley Harriott and Radio and TV host Melvin Odoom.

"I can't wait!" she said of signing up for the festive one off, "Any excuse for me to get involved and back in the sequins I'm there!"

The Christmas special isn't Frankie's only reason for returning to Strictly this year, she's cheering on pal Louise Redknapp in the main show as well.

"I'm friends with Louise Redknapp and she's with Kevin Clifton, who was my partner, so for me it's like two of my friends going through what I've been through," Frankie told OK! magazine. "I've popped down to rehearsals and Louise phones me to get feedback on her performances."

And while she's busy with Strictly, Frankie's husband Wayne is off eating kangaroo penis in the I'm A Celebrity jungle.

"I'm missing him a lot because I haven't been able to speak to him. It's been very weird not being able to speak to him," she admitted, adding it was hard explaining to the pair's two children just what their dad was up to on the TV.

Given I'm A Celebrity's notoriously ridiculous trials, we can only imagine...

The Strictly Come Dancing Christmas special will air Christmas Day on BBC One.
