Jennifer Grey is to guest judge 'Strictly Come Dancing.'
The 'Dirty Dancing' actress - who won the last series of US equivalent show 'Dancing With the Stars' - will sit on the panel for the weekend of November 5 while head judge Len Goodman takes a brief break.
She said: "I'm delighted to be involved and can't wait to see what the contestants have got.
"I so look forward to the pilgrimage to the birthplace of the greatest dance show - the mecca of spray tans and tangos - and sit in for the great and pernickety Len Goodman."
Show chiefs are also hoping the 51-year-old actress will perform with one of the male professionals on the programme.
A source told The Sun newspaper: "Jennifer dazzled everyone on 'Dancing With the Stars.' She'll be a sure-fire hit dancing on 'Strictly.'"
Meanwhile, former soccer star Robbie Savage has revealed the fake tan he wears on the show is wreaking havoc with his wardrobe.
The sportsman - who is partnered alongside Ola Jordan - is loving competing on the programme, but is trying desperately to tone down his bronzed look as it is staining his favourite garments.
He said: "I've spent hours trying to scrub out the bronzer. It has ruined loads of my clothes.
"I'm not a Premier League footballer any more so I can't afford to keep replacing them. But I wouldn't swap this experience for anything.
"I am loving every minute of it."
