YouTube superstar Saffron Barker was last week announced as part of this year’s much anticipated Strictly Come Dancing line-up.
And the 19-year-old captured the moment she told her Strictly superfan grandmother the news as part of her latest vlog.
She was bursting with joy and exclaimed that Saffron was “living her dream” in the adorable video uploaded to Saffron’s YouTube channel.
With almost 1 million subscribers, 19-year-old Saffron has a best-selling book and a number of homeware ranges to her name already.
She follows in the footsteps of fellow YouTuber Joe Sugg who reached the final of the 2018 series.
