Strictly Come Dancing sign KISS FM Dj Tyler West as 7th star for 2022 show | The Sun
STRICTLY Come Dancing have revealed their seventh celebrity contestant – Tyler West.
The TV presenter and DJ will be taking to the dance floor this winter, but admits it’s very much “out of his comfort zone.”
He said: “I am SO gassed to be joining the Strictly family! As I started writing this I already got cramp. It’s going to be one crazy incredible journey which will no doubt be SO far outside my comfort zone.
“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 is best known for hosting weekday afternoons on KISS, for which he was nominated for a prestigious ARIA for Best New Presenter in 2020.
Having begun his broadcasting career in children’s television, presenting various programming across CBBC, he has hosted MTV News, HQ Trivia and the 2020 EE BAFTA Awards Red Carpet Live Show.
