Appearing on BBC Radio 5 this morning, Jayde admitted is was difficult not to spill the beans – and gave away a clue about how she avoided it.

The comedy star said: “I’m up at the Edinburgh Festival, I’ve had to not go out to not drink and tell people.

“My family know, my mum and dad know but I really kept it quiet.”

The Bristolian actress and writer announced she will be joining actor Will Mellor, 46, and Loose Women star Kaye Adams, who was revealed as part of the dance line-up  earlier this week.

Fans predicted mayhem in the new series after bosses announced Jayde going on the show.

The British comic is the second star with the surname Adams to be revealed as part of the line-up.

Viewers are convinced this similarity will cause “confusing” when the series kicks off next month.

A fan said: “Kaye Adams and Jayde Adams is going to confuse no end, but both great bookings.”

Another added: “All you need to do now is add Tony Adams and Bryan Adams and then we’ll be well and truly confused.”

Someone else joked: “Following on from the announcement that Kaye Adams and Jayde Adams will appear on #Strictly, I’ll be looking forward to seeing Bryan, Gerry and Amy do the Foxtrot.”
