CONFIRMED: Shirley Ballas Is Head Judge

After months of speculation, the BBC have announced that Shirley Ballas will be the new head judge on Strictly Come Dancing.

In the press release, Shirley said: "I am so excited and over the moon to have been given this wonderful opportunity. I can't wait to get in to the ballroom and be part of the incredible and respected judging panel. Strictly is so loved by the British public, I have always been a massive fan. I just can't wait!"

Shirley will join existing judges Craig Revel Horwood, Bruno Tonioli and Darcey Bussell, making the panel gender-balanced for the first time.
