“Wouldn’t mind turning back time to yesterday when my neck worked & my limbs moved naturally & my sweet ignorant bliss made me excited for what was to come,” she began.

“Twenty-four hours later, I crawled home.

“Stopped at the shops for a protein shake, bought magnesium & Epsom salts, a bag of snacks, coconut water,” she added.

“Gang, all the enthusiasm, no idea… #strictly #Day1.”

Previously speaking about why he joined the show, the presenter confessed she had been offered a spot in the series before but was waiting for the right time and wanted to take on the challenge.

“We’ve been close and then, truthfully we wanted to have another baby. We were trying to have a baby, I was then pregnant, then I had a very small child. And now, it just felt right this year,” she shared on BBC Radio Two.

Opening up about the show on an Instagram Q&A Angela also described “the joy” that came with it, adding how she even felt overwhelmed by how kind people had already been towards her.

We can’t wait to see our gal in action!
