The BBC has announced the 10 celebrities who will be taking part in their new Saturday night show, Tumble.
The TOWIE star spoke of her nerves about her high-flying routines: “I'm scared, nervous and more excited than I can describe about Tumble!
"To have the opportunity to learn a new skill is a dream come true for me. Although I'm sure I'll be falling over a lot before then!"
Sarah Harding said she's excited for the cirque Du Soleil-inspired training.
"I'm really looking forward, but also a little bit scared, about all the training I'll be doing ... but at least it beats going to the gym!" she added.
Ian 'H' Watkins from Steps and Dynasty star Emma Samms will also be competing, alongside Eastenders actor John Partridge and Loose Women host Andrea McLean.
Current world boxing champion Carl Froch, fitness legend Mr Motivator and the award-winning Wolfblood actor Bobby Lockwood complete the list of contestants.
The stars will be vaulting, tumbling and flipping in a series of gymnastic challenges for the show and will undertake a gruelling training regime with their own professional coach to master the tricky routines the judges will score them on.
The judging panel will be made up of world-renowned Olympic gymnast Nadia Comaneci, Strictly Come Dancing champ and London 2012 medallist Louis Smith MBE, Commonwealth Games gymnastics champion and broadcaster Craig Heap, and aerial performer and cirque artist Sebastien Stella.
Alex Jones will be the host of the show, which kicks off this summer on BBC One.
