Anita wowed the audience of Strictly Come Dancing 2015 with her hard work, enthusiasm, and total fearlessness. As well as enjoying the glitter and glamour of Strictly, Anita also delved into her family tree in 2015, for the BBC’s Who Do You Think You Are? Anita travelled from Bradford to the Punjab, and was visibly moved by the discoveries she made about her grandparents.

Her debut book The Right Sort of Girl was released in 2021, documenting her upbringing and the lessons she’s learnt growing up navigating her Indian world at home and the British world outside. It became a Sunday Times bestseller and received rave reviews upon release.
