Sherri Shepherd says it's a "dream come true" to be competing in the new season of Dancing with the Stars.

The View co-host will join eleven other celebrities in season 14 of the hit US TV show. The names were announced on Good Morning America today.

Sherri is thrilled to be a part of the popular dance show, which sees a group of celebrities partnered with professional dancers to compete for the coveted mirror ball trophy.

"It's a dream come true," Sherrie told People about dancing with professional partner Val Chmerkovskiy.

"He is one of the best frickin' dancers in the world. He's hot!"

Other stars to join the line-up include former child actress Melissa Gilbert, Family Matters star Jaleel White, tennis legend Martina Navratilova and Jack Wagner.

Welsh opera singer Katherine Jenkins, TV host Maria Menounos, Motown singer Gladys Knight, Disney star Roshon Fegan, NFL champion Donald Driver, singer Gavin DeGraw and Telenovela actor William Levy round out the show's all-star line-up.

Last season saw J.R. Martinez and professional dancer Karina Smirnoff take the title, with Rob Kardashian and Ricki Lake finishing in second and third place respectively.

The new season of Dancing with the Stars premieres in a live two-hour event on Monday, March 19 on ABC.
