Supermodel Rachel Hunter, former NEW KIDS ON THE BLOCK star Joey McIntyre and heavyweight boxing champ Evander Holyfield are preparing to show off their dancing skills in a new TV contest.

Dancing With The Stars, based on the British show Strictly Come Dancing, will pair a celebrity with a professional dance partner as they train and then compete in front of a studio audience in a televised dance competition.

They will be judged by a panel of experts and also by viewers at home, with one couple being eliminated each week.

The couples have already embarked on intense training in preparation for the first live show, which will air in America on 1 June (05).
