Cheryl Tweedy is returning to "The Greatest Dancer".

The 35-year-old singer has agreed to continue her role as dance captain on the BBC One talent show, which sees performers compete for £50,000 and a chance to perform on "Strictly Come Dancing", when it returns for a second series next year.

Speaking to The Sun Online, she said: "I don't think I'm allowed to say but I'm going to anyway - I'm going back to the dance show. I'm going to get told off for that, but it doesn't matter because it's just a fact. I love, love, loved the dance show."

The former Girls Aloud star was joined on the programme by Broadway legend Matthew Morrison and "Strictly" professional Oti Mabuse but it's not yet known whether they too are planning to sign another contract with bosses for the next instalment.

As well as judging and coaching the competitors, the trio were also given the chance to showcase their dance skills as they performed a routine at the start of every show and then choreographed and took part in their contestant's number during the final.

Host Jordan Banjo said last month: "Cheryl brought so much to the show as a dancer and dance captain. She was wicked to work with and handled everything really well. Her performance with the Strictly pros was like a baptism of fire. Getting on stage with them at world-class level and holding her own, she smashed it."

The fact that Cheryl has signed up for another series of "The Greatest Dancer" means that it's highly unlikely that she'll be joining the "X Factor" judging panel.
