Cheryl throws a shape and looks forward to finding The Greatest Dancer on the latest TV talent contest from BBC1.
The singer and X Factor judge is limbering up with Britain’s Got Talent and Strictly judge Alesha Dixon for the show that starts in the New Year.
Cheryl, 35, said: “The great thing about The Greatest Dancer is we put the power into the audiences’ hands.” She’ll be a dance captain – alongside Glee actor Matthew Morrison and Strictly pro Oti Mabuse. They will whittle down acts who get through auditions.
Alesha, 40, will host the show with Ashley Banjo of dance troupe Diversity.

Cheryl recently faced a backlash from fans after her sexy routine on The X Factor, where she grabbed her crotch, licked her hand and writhed around on the floor to her new track Love Made Me Do It.
One Direction star Louis Tomlinson, who is close friends with her ex Liam Payne, looked a bit hot under the collar as he watched Cheryl from the judges’ desk.
