Strictly Come Dancing: Capital DJ Vick Hope joins line-up

Another name has been added to the 2018 Strictly Come Dancing line-up – that of Capital FM presenter Vick Hope.
Hope, who hosts the commercial radio station’s breakfast show with Roman Kemp, is the fifth celebrity contestant confirmed for the upcoming series.
“It’s a bit of a turn-up for the books to be honest,” she told listeners.
“I’m a fan of the show and I feel very honoured to be a part of it. I promise you I’m going to work so, so hard – I’m so excited.”
Each of this year’s contestants was given the name of a type of cheese as a codename to protect their identities in the run-up to the show.
Hope revealed her cheese-related alias had been Wensleydale – joking that perhaps it was because she is “Northern and creamy”.
The 28-year-old presenter, who was born in Newcastle and studied at Cambridge, also hosts Sky One’s Carnage – a Mad Max-style racing show.
Her other roles include digital reporter for ITV talent shows The Voice and The Voice Kids.
Hope joins a line-up that also includes YouTube vlogger Joe Sugg, broadcaster Katie Piper and Steps’ Faye Tozer.
Red Dwarf actor Danny John-Jules has also been confirmed as one of this year’s dancing stars.
What they’ve had to say
“I don’t really know what I’m doing to be honest,” said the 26-year-old Sugg after his identity was revealed on Tuesday.
“I know it will be a huge challenge but that’s what life is all about I guess.”
Joe’s main YouTube channel, featuring pranks, dares and impressions, has more than eight million subscribers.
