Katie Price is to star in 'Let's Dance for Comic Relief'.
The former glamour model is reportedly hoping taking part in the charity dance spectacular will help her win back fans after her bitter split from ex-husband Alex Reid after just 11 months of marriage.
Joining a string of stars in the three-part BBC One show - including former 'EastEnders' actor Joe Swash, 'The Mighty Boosh's Noel Fielding and 'Waterloo Road' star Philip Martin Brown - Katie will be seen working alongside a choreographer to learn famous dance routines.
According to The Sun newspaper, the moves will then be performed over a three-week period from February 19, with a public vote deciding who will land a place in the show's final.
'Let's Dance for Comic Relief' - which was won by comedian Rufus Hound last year - will be hosted by Steve Jones and 'The One Show' presenter Alex Jones and will raise cash for malaria victims.
The 32-year-old star - who has three children, Harvey, eight, Junior, five, and Princess Tiaamii, three - has been locked in a bitter dispute this week with ex-husband Peter Andre, after she claimed he was "publicity" seeking when stories about a burn on Princess' arm were revealed.
In a statement on her website, Katie wrote: "I will take whatever insults my ex-husband wishes to heap on me but I will not accept him portraying me as a bad mother. I hope this puts to an end the ridiculous stories about my wanting my ex-husband back."
