Baywatch star Pamela Anderson set for dance show

Former Baywatch star Pamela Anderson and astronaut Buzz Aldrin are among those competing in the latest series of US show Dancing With The Stars.

Singer Nicole Scherzinger and actress Shannen Doherty will also take to the floor when the talent show begins on 22 March on the ABC channel.

"It's definitely one of our strongest cast line-ups ever," said executive producer Conrad Green.

"Pound for pound, it should be really fascinating watching."

Training warning

Green said limits were imposed on training time for this series after a spate of injuries suffered by last year's celebrities, which caused two stars to drop out before the competition began.

Host Tom Bergeron and former finalist Melissa Rycroft revealed the latest cast on Monday.

Reality TV stars Kate Gosselin and Jake Pavelka, Olympic gold medal figure skater Evan Lysacek, sports broadcaster Erin Andrews, football star Chad Ochocinco and actors Aiden Turner and Niecy Nash are also taking part.

The new dancers will train for three weeks before the first show.

Donny Osmond won the last series in November.
