Irish actress Evanna Lynch to compete in US Dancing With The Stars

Evanna Lynch has confirmed that she will join Season 27 of Dancing With The Stars.

Lynch, best known for portraying Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter movies, confirmed her involvement in the American version on the show on her social media accounts on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old actress will partner up with professional dancer Keo Motsepe, who will presumably be tasked with not dropping her throughout a variety of dance moves.

The other stars rumoured to be involved include Tinashe, Mary Lou Retton, Bobby Bones, Alexis Ren, John Schneider, DeMarcus Ware, Danelle Umstead and Juan Pablo Di Pace.

The programme features many of the same judges as the UK edition, including Len Goodman, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. It will be hosted by Tom Bergerson with Erin Andrews.

It's set to premiere on 24 September on the ABC network.
