Celebrity mom of eight Kate Gosselin will also be joining the line-up, along with Baywatch babe Pamela Anderson, former 90210 bad girl Shannen Doherty and the most recent TV Bachelor Jake Pavelka.

Rounding out the 10-strong dancing crew are Olympic gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek, ESPN sportscaster Erin Andrews, Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger, NFL star Chad Ochocinco, and actors Aiden Turner and Niecy Nash.

The show will air in the U.S. starting March 22.
