SAFFRON Barker has been confirmed as the fourth celebrity to join the 2019 Strictly Come Dancing line up.

The YouTube star's place in the new series was announced on Heart Radio on Thursday morning by 2018 finalist Ashley Roberts.

Saffron, 19, who lives in Rottingdean, boasts over two million subscribers on YouTube.

She has a reported net worth of £1million from her YouTube content which focuses on a mix of make up, challenge videos and pranks.

Speaking to Heart Radio, Saffron said despite having 1.2million followers on Instagram she's "scared" of how the public might react to her place on the flagship BBC show.

"I think that's what I'm most nervous for," she confessed.

"I think that everyone who follows me will support me as much as possible."

While she's a social media sensation, Saffron admitted that her dance skills definitely need some work. "Everyone keeps thinking I'm going to be really good," she admitted.

"Sorry to disappoint everyone but I don't think I'm going to be. I'd rate myself maybe a four, that's not great.

"If I go out with my friends all of them can really dance, I'm the worst one if we go to a club. I'm there doing the one, two step and a little bit of a click, that's pretty much all I can do, I wish I could twerk or something but no I can't."

Saffron also spoke about potentially finding love on the show, laughing "I am very [single], but I haven't even really thought about that.

"I think I'm just so focused on, obviously I want to meet my partner and have the best time and everything else, but I'm just so focused on working hard."

Saffron joins former England goalkeeper David James, stand up comic Chris Ramsey and EastEnders star Emma Barton, who were the first three celebrities announced on The One Show on Wednesday.
