Actress Stacey Dash has joined America's Fox News network as a regular contributor.

The Clueless star, who is known for her conservative views, will "offer cultural analysis and commentary" in various daytime and primetime programme, according to a new press release.

A statement from Fox News' executive vice president of programming, Bill Shine, reads: "Stacey is an engaging conversationalist whose distinctive viewpoints amongst her Hollywood peers have spawned national debates - we're pleased to have her join Fox News."

In 2012, Dash sparked backlash when she endorsed Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney over U.S. leader Barack Obama.
