Katherine Jenkins lines up to 'Dance With The Stars'

Wednesday February 29, 2012

Katherine Jenkins has signed up to compete in the new series of US show Dancing With The Stars.

She previously appeared on the programme in 2011 as the featured singer during its classical week.

But this time the newly-single Welsh opera singer will be taking to the floor to bust some moves.

She will join soul star Gladys Knight, singer-songwriter Gavin DeGraw and tennis player Martina Navratilova in the celebrity dancing contest when it returns to screens next month.

The contestants will dance their first routines with their professional partners on March 19 and March 26, with the first couple eliminated on March 27.

Katherine, 31, and former Blue Peter presenter fiance Gethin Jones, 34, announced they were ending their relationship in late December.

The singer, who began dating the TV star in late 2007, said they were both "beyond broken-hearted" at the decision.
