Snooki, Jack Osbourne and Elizabeth Berkley have joined the cast of Dancing With The Stars, the American version of Strictly Come Dancing.

The same week we've learned who will dance for the Mirror Ball Trophy in the UK, the US show has unveiled its glittering list of celebrities.

Also on this year's DWTS line up is Saved By The Bell actress Elizabeth Berkley. Yep, that means while Screech is in the Celebrity Big Brother house over here in the UK, Jessie will be strutting her stuff on the dance floor in the US.

Sadly it doesn't seem the show will be airing in the UK. Boo! But thanks to the wonder that is the internet, we expect we'll be kept very up-to-date on how Snooki and co. are going anyway!
