Shirley Ballas is set to front new CBeebies show "Our School Summer Camp".

In the BBC kids" series, the "Strictly Come Dancing" judge will be leading young people on a variety of activities which viewers at home could copy during their summer holiday from school and the 58-year-old dancer will have a "fairy godmother type role" on screen.

A source told The Sun's Bizarre TV column: "Shirley is really excited about the project and can't wait to start. She'll have a fairy godmother type role and will be a breath of fresh air on the channel."

Shirley was chosen for the show because she has "garnered a young fan base" since joining the BBC ballroom show and it is the perfect project to fill her year before she returns to the "Strictly" panel later this year.

The source said: "She's garnered a young fan base over the past two years since her breakout role on "Strictly". This is the ideal job for her before her judging commitments start again in autumn.
