Murray, 55 has been paired with Strictly favourite and all round cheeky chappie Anton De Beke on the dancing reality show that was launched on the BBC on Sunday evening.

Murray said on the BBC One Strictly website ‘I think that Jamie and Andy will be nervous in a ‘Don’t you dare embarrass us’ kind of way!

Murray who trained as tennis coach inspired both sons to start playing tennis at a young age, and now they’re Britain’s top players, with Andy being the first British male player to win the Wimbledon singles title in seventy seven years in 2013.  Murray herself won sixty-four tennis titles in Scotland during her playing career, but choose her education over competing on the International tennis circuit.

In 2012 Murray created Set4Sport, an initiative to get families more active. Inspired by her experience playing with her own boys, the scheme is all about playing games and having fun in a family environment, using everyday household objects as equipment.
