Katherine Jenkins, Jack Wagner and Melissa Gilbert are to take part in the next series of 'Dancing with the Stars'.
The Welsh opera singer, the 'Melrose Place' actor and the former 'Little House on the Prairie' star are among the stars in the line-up for the 14th season of the hit show.
They will be joined by the likes of tennis legend Martina Navratilova, 'The View' co-host Sherri Shepherd, and Jaleel White, who is best known as Steve Urkel from 'Family Matters'.
TV host Maria Menounos, Motown great Gladys Knight, Disney star Roshon Fegan, NFL champion Donald Driver, singer Gavin DeGraw and 'Telenovela' actor William Levy complete the line-up.
The contestants have already met their professional partners and last season's winner Karina Smirnoff - who won with war hero J.R. Martinez - has been paired with Gavin, while three-times winner Derek Hough is partnered with Maria.
Fan favourite Maksim Chmerkovskiy will teach Melissa her moves and his brother, Val Chmerkovskiy, will make his 'DWTS' debut with Sherri.
Two-time champ Mark Ballas will dance with Katherine and Cheryl Burker - who took Rob Kardashian all the way to the final on the last series - has got William.
The new season of 'Dancing with the Stars' will start on March 19.
