Taking to Instagram, Zara said she was posting a "photo dump" of the "best few weeks ever" as training kicked off for the BBC One dance competition. One photo saw the TV favourite show off her dancing skills as she sat practicing the splits.

In a classic dancers pose, Zara had her legs on the floor stretched out as far as she could with her toes pointed as she perfected her flexibility.

She placed one hand behind her and flashed a smile in the mirror as she held her phone up to take a selfie. Zara donned a pair of leggings and a sports bra as she picked up her training – a far cry from the dazzling outfits she'll be wearing when she takes the stage this week.

Another photo saw Zara and Graziano hard at work as they cheekily posed in the mirror, and this time Zara opted to try out the heels which will be necessary for her performances. She donned a pair of socks with the shoes while also wearing some white shorts and a black top.

Meanwhile, Graziano posed behind her in an all-black outfit and some trainers. As Zara posted the "dump" online, her fans flocked to share their support for the pairing.

One user wrote: "So excited to see you shine on Strictly! Go Zara!" While another said: "I cannot wait to follow your Strictly journey!!! Bring on Saturday!" A third added: "Best of luck on Strictly gorgeous girl."

Zara became the first person from Love Island to sign up for the show – but she's landed far more credits far and wide too. After rising to fame on Love Island, Zara opened up about her previous experience with revenge porn, and ultimately made a documentary on it.

After that, she continued to make various documentaries covering important topics, including Uncovering Rape Culture, Disordered Eating and Gaia: A Death on Dancing Ledge – another documentary is also set to come out in 2023, titled Inside Ibiza.
