Actress Julianne Hough, who had won season four and five of "Dancing with the Stars", is reportedly going to judge the reality show.
Hough had quit the show after the eighth series in 2009 to pursue a music and film career. Now she is likely to take up a new role as a permanent panellist on the upcoming 19th season.
The 26-year-old star, who was seen as a guest on the 13th and 14th series, has been offered the chance to take up the fourth judging position alongside current panellists Carrie Ann Inaba, Len Goodman and Bruno Tonioli.
In October last year, Hough she had filled in for Goodman as a guest judge.
