The actor is competing on the 2021 series of the BBC competition
Actor Katie McGlynn is one of the celebrity contestants taking to the dance floor for this year’s series of Strictly Come Dancing, but who actually is she?
McGlynn was nominated for a BAFTA and won a ‘Best Serial Drama Performance’ at the National Television Awards for her portrayal of Tinker.
Prior to that, the actor featured as a regular cast member on Waterloo Road as well as other BBC One programmes including The Syndicate e Moving On.
Mais recentemente, the actor has appeared in Hollyoaks as newcomer Becky Quinn.
Speaking about joining the show, McGlynn disse: “Tem sido tão difícil manter isso em segredo, but I can finally say that I’m getting ready to shake my shimmy and become part of the Strictly family!
“Eu realmente não sou um dançarino, but I’m so excited to learn a new skill on this crazy journey and cannot wait to slip into some sequins along the way.”
Ela adicionou: “Although I do get to have so much fun as an actress, a lot of my roles have involved quite serious and challenging storylines, so I’m fully ready to let my hair down and do something different, mesmo que esteja completamente fora da minha zona de conforto.
“I can’t promise that I’ll be the best, mas eu vou dar 110 per cent on the dance floor! Contanto que eu não caia, serei feliz. ”
Strictly Come Dancing airs on Saturday nights on BBC One.
