Judy Murray has revealed that her son Andy gave her a scathing review of her Strictly Come Dancing chances, calling her "absolutely terrible."

Rumours that she was to appear in the forthcoming series as a contestant were circulating during this year's Wimbledon, with Andy telling her she would have no chance.

'Absolutely terrible'

She told reporters: "It was on the front page of the papers during Wimbledon and Andy asked me about it."

At the time, she said she would not be participating. Andy's reaction was: "thank God for that, you would be absolutely terrible."

It seems that she was telling her son a complete pack of lies as BBC Strictly Come Dancing tweeted: "Look who's all set for strictly. The lovely Judy Murray @judimoo, that's who. Serve-en!"

Ignoring that truly awful pun, she might have been fired up by the jeers from her youngest son, who knows. But what is for sure is that the tennis coach will dancing away in high definition on the BBC's hit television show on Saturday nights.

'Huge fan'

"I'm a huge Strictly fan but a total armchair dancer," Judy said. "It's going to be a big challenge for me and for whoever has to dance with me. I absolutely can't wait to get started."

The only other celebrity confirmed to be taking part this year is Wayne Bridge's wife, otherwise known as Frankie from the girl band The Saturdays.
