The Waterloo Road actress, who finished second in the 2011 competition, explained to Digital Spy that she has a particular soft spot for the Olympic gymnast, branding him "a bit of a cutie".
Asked for her verdict on the new contestants, Healey replied: "This year I'm thinking Denise Van Outen will be brilliant, I think Louis, because he's a bit of a cutie.
"I think the girl who plays Tracy Beaker - she done Let's Dance for Sport Relief so I think she's gonna be absolutely fabulous."
Healey also admitted that she has considered not watching this year's series of Strictly for fear that it will make her too "emotional".
"I'm just gutted that I'm not in it," she stated. "I said I don't think I'll be able to watch, but I can't not watch.
"I always get emotional when I watch Strictly. It was such a magical experience and I'll never forget it."
The pairings for this year's Strictly Come Dancing were revealed for the first time in Saturday's (September 15) launch show.
