Casualty star Sunetra Sarker is the seventh celebrity confirmed for this year’s Strictly Come Dancing.
“I don’t quite know what I’ve let myself in for… I’m in total denial! But the chance to swap my stethoscope for sequins was just too tempting. I am very excited to be part of the Strictly team!” – Sunetra
The actress has played the role of Dr. Zoe Hanna in the long-running medical drama since 2007 but found fame in the late 1980s when she joined the cast of Brookside. She served two stints in the Channel 4 soap (1988-1990, 2000-2003) as Nisha Batra.
After leaving Brookside, Sunetra secured another high profile role in Channel 4’s No Angels, starring as Anji Mittel in the comedy-drama from 2004 until 2006.
