Former Coronation Street castmember Natalie Gumede looks set to feature on the next season of Strictly Come Dancing. 

The actress, who is best known for her stint in Weatherfield playing Tyrone Dobbs' abusive former partner Kristy Soames in the popular TV show, looks set to join the cast for the new season of what is one of BBCs flagship shows, according to the Daily Star.

The 29-year-old, who left Corrie when her character was jailed, has confessed to being a "huge fan" of the dancing show, which will hit our screens again next month.
