Pamela Anderson, Nicole Scherzinger and Shannen Doherty are to take part in the new series of Dancing With The Stars.

Host Tom Bergeron and former finalist Melissa Rycroft revealed that Buzz Aldrin, Kate Gosselin, Jake Pavelka, gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek, sports broadcaster Erin Andrews, American football star Chad Ochocinco and actors Aiden Turner and Niecy Nash are also in the new line-up.

The series will be aired in the UK on Watch, starting on Friday March 26 at 9pm.

Watch’s Paul Moreton said: “With Pamela Anderson, Nicole Scherzinger and Shannen Doherty dancing, this season it’s going to be must-see TV.”

UKTV’s Catherine Mackin added: “I’m really excited about the range of talent with international appeal this year – Dancing With The Stars is now a ‘must see’ global entertainment show!”

The new dancers will train for three weeks before making their debut.

The show’s executive producer Conrad Green said his staff is enforcing limits on training time to avoid the spate of injuries that plagued last year’s cast and caused two stars to drop out before the competition began.
