Kaye Adams thinks she's got no chance of winning 'Strictly Come Dancing'.

The 'Loose Women' presenter has signed up to take part in the new series of the BBC Latin and ballroom competition but the 59-year-old star admitted she's already resigned to the likelihood of not making it to the final.

She said: "I have never danced before. This is a huge leap in the dark.

"I will go out of the competition at whatever stage and that is fine."

She jokingly added to the Daily Star Sunday newspaper: "There is no room on my mantelpiece for the Glitterball."

A few days ago, judge Craig Revel Horwood admitted he was "concerned" about how Kaye would fare on the show, particularly when it comes to the Latin dances.

He said: "Kaye Adams I’m slightly concerned about!

"I think she’ll do quite well at the ballroom stuff, but I’m worried about the Latin.

"The sex appeal and the hip action and rhythm, things like the cha-cha-cha might prove … a challenge, darling.

"It’s the selling yourself bare – the costumes are all quite skimpy with the Latin."

When Kaye first revealed she'd signed up for the show, she confessed she was "terrified" about taking to the ballroom.

She said: " It's me! I'm absolutely terrified because I can't dance. I could think of a million reasons not to do this. When these gorgeous dancers came on, I nearly exited from both ends of my body but I thought I might be sitting I'm 59 - I've always lied about my age but I've decided to embrace it and so I'm 60 at the end of this year and I thought 'Why not?' I can't make much of a fool of myself!"
