Strictly Come Dancing

Judy Murray will 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.

“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.

Born in Bridge of Allan, Scotland Judy qualified as a tennis coach aged 17 and went on to become the eighth best female player in the UK. Judy is passionate about encouraging the next generation of youngsters and has supported both her professional tennis playing sons throughout their careers.

Strictly Come Dancing returns to BBC One and BBC One HD this autumn.
