Steve Irwin's daughter Bindi has signed up for the American version of Strictly Come Dancing.

The 17-year-old is among the celebrity contestants for the new series of Dancing With The Stars, which is pretty much exactly the same as our Strictly. It even features judge Bruno Tonioli! Len Goodman used to be a judge as well, but he left the show this year to focus on Strictly and his family.

Bindi became well known as a child when she used to help her late Crocodile Hunter father out at Australia Zoo. She appeared regularly in his TV shows and had her own show, Bindi the Jungle Girl.

Since her father's death in 2006, she has continued her father's work at his zoo and on television, as well as taking on movie roles.

"I took a shower last night, and the amount of dirt and mud that came off of me was phenomenal, so it will be quite different," she told People this week. "I'm used to jumping on top of crocodiles and holding them down to put trackers on them. Now, I'm about to be on a dance floor in the middle of a concrete jungle trying my luck and doing the best I possibly can. I'm excited."

Other celebrities confirmed for Dancing include Backstreet Boys' Nick Carter.
