Sharon would be judged by Arlene Phillips, 65, and Craig Revel Horwood, 44. This means she will go head to head in the Saturday night ratings against her old ITV show The X Factor.
"This is going to be one hell of a show. It will put Sharon back on telly on a Saturday night on a prime-time show where she belongs. X Factor and Strictly often go head to head in the TV schedules," The Daily Star quoted a source, as saying.
"Expect fireworks. It will be fun to see who she's paired up too," the source added.
