Oh Baby! Jennifer Grey joins Strictly panel

Thursday October 20, 2011

Dirty Dancing actress, Jennifer Grey, will be filling in as a guest judge on Strictly Come Dancing from November 5.

The actress shot to fame when she played Baby in the iconic movie, and returned to screens last year in the American version of Strictly, Dancing With The Stars.

Jennifer partnered professional dancer Derek Hough throughout the show, and went on to be crowned the winner.

She will sit in for Len Goodman, while he spends some time in the US to focus on the American show – where he is also a judge.

Jennifer said of her new role:

"I am delighted to be involved.

"I so look forward to making the pilgrimage to the birthplace of the greatest dance show, the mecca of spray tans and tangos, and to sit in for the great and pernickety Len Goodman."
