Ashley Roberts burst onto the entertainment scene in the mid-naughties as part of pop-dance troupe The Pussycat Dolls.
Here are all the big facts to introduce you to the talented entertainer:
Ashley Roberts is an American singer, actress, model, and TV presenter, best known as a former member of The Pussycat Dolls. The group scored several hits in the mid-to-late 2000s, including the UK number one 'Don't Cha'.
She quit the band in 2010, and has since become a fixture on British TV. She was a runner-up on I'm a Celebrity...Get Me Out of Here! in 2012, and has also starred in The Jump, was a judge on Dancing on Ice, and co-hosted Ant & Dec's Saturday Night Takeaway from 2013 to 2016.
In 2018, she was a runner-up in Strictly Come Dancing, and she currently co-hosts the breakfast show on Smooth's sister station Heart.
Ashley Roberts was born on September 14, 1981. She celebrated her 39th birthday in 2019.
She was born in Phoenix, Arizona and is of English descent. She began dancing at the age of three, and singing from eight.
Her father was a drummer for the Mamas & the Papas, and later became an auto dealer, while her mother was a Pilates instructor.
However, in early 2020 the couple confirmed that they were no longer dating.
She was said to have previously in a brief relationship with Declan Donnelly.
Earlier in 2018, she told The Mirror: “Being single, I have set boundaries on the men I date.
“Once I have separated I do not check their Instagram. It is brutal. It is very dangerous. I have learned the hard way. I don’t feel like I need to block. I unfollow them.”
Ashley Roberts has a net worth of around £1.2 million ($1.6m), according to Celebrity Net Worth.
In the second series of The Masked Singer on ITV, viewers have turned detective to try and figure out who each secret performer is.
One such guess that's doing the rounds is that Ashley is in fact Swan, due to the glamorous bird's American accent and clues so far.
We'll just have to wait and see if this is the case or not...
