Strictly Come Dancing 2019: ‘Who?’ Zoe Ball makes shock line-up admission
Strictly Come Dancing is still a month away from airing on the BBC but it seems that hasn’t stopped fans getting excited.
While the 2019 line-up get used to their dancing shoes, even Zoe Ball has had her say on the incoming cast.
It seems she was taken aback by some of the names, and even admitted to not knowing who some of them were.
The host spoke about Saffron Barker in particular, a 19-year-old YouTuber, and how she wasn’t initially convinced.
The presenter said on her BBC Radio 2 show: “They’ve announced another Strictly Come Dancing person.
“Social media star, Saffron Barker, she’s 19, and we were all like, ‘Who?’”
The It Takes Two presenter went on to liken her to last year’s finalist, Joe Sugg, who was undoubtedly a huge success.
Zoe reflected: “Maybe she is this year’s Joe!
“She could well be, she looks very lovely.”
Saffron was announced earlier in the month when she appeared on Heart Radio’s Breakfast Show.

Meanwhile, at the bottom of the pile, David James is tipped at 22/1 to win.
Mike Bushell holds odds of 33/1 and is joined by Will Bayley at the same price.
