Kelly Brook signs as Dirty Dancing judge

Kelly Brook has signed up as a judge in a Dirty Dancing-style TV show for LIVINGtv.

The former Big Breakfast presenter, recently seen out with ex-fiance Billy Zane, will help find the next Johnny and Baby in Dirty Dancing: The Time of Your Life.

She replaces Jennifer Ellison, a judge on the first series for digital channel LIVINGtv.

The show is filmed at Kellerman’s, the resort location of the original movie, and sees 16 wannabe dancers compete to become the next Johnny and Baby and win a year-long contract with a dance agency.

Brook said: “Dirty Dancing is one of my favourite films and I can’t wait to get to Kellerman’s, carry the watermelon and learn the rules of Dirty Dancing.

“While raw dance talent is essential I will be looking for that magic chemistry in our couples that will make the dance floor sizzle.”

And having performed so well on Strictly Come Dancing, before her unfortunate withdrawal due to a family bereavement, Kelly’s in a great position to judge.
