The presenter is best known for hosting weekday afternoons on Kiss and has presented shows on CBBC, MTV News and BBC Three.

Tyler was revealed to be joining Strictly on Monday’s Kiss Breakfast with Jordan & Perri.

“It’s a show that means so much to me and my family and I can’t wait to seriously shake a leg on that shiny dance floor… with a side of sequins.”

Tyler joins six previously announced stars competing on Strictly this year, including Will Mellor and Kym Marsh, who were the first contestants confirmed for the series last week.

Since then, radio personality Richie AndersonLoose Women panellist Kaye Adamscomedian Jayde Adams and Paralympic swimmer Ellie Simmonds have also been revealed to be taking part.
