Anne Doyle is set to make her comeback to our screens as a contestant on Dancing With The Stars.

The veteran broadcaster (64) retired after 33 years on RTE on Christmas Day 2011 and has made select appearances on the small screen since, but will waltz back into Montrose as one of the big names attached to the much-hyped dancing show.

According to the Sunday World, DWTS Ireland will being its three-month run from January 8 and hosted by Amanda Byram and Angela Scanlon.

It would mark Byram's first Irish series since she left Ireland AM in 2001. Scanlon, who is currently fronting Robot Wars on the BBC, is reportedly close to signing on the dotted line.

Well-known presenters including Grainne Seoige, Vogue Williams, Brian Dowling, Eoghan McDermott and Nicky Byrne are among those who are believed to have auditioned for the coveted hosting role.

But contestants shouldn't be expecting a big payday for their efforts - each celebrity will be paid a €3,300 fee with the winner scooping a €24,600 prize.
