Nene Leakes will compete on 'Dancing With The Stars'.

The outspoken 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' star is set to join the likes of 'Price Is Right' host Drew Carey, former ice hockey player Sean Avery and 'Full House' alumni Candace Cameron Bure on the 18th season of the popular ballroom dancing show.

The full line-up was officially unveiled on 'Good Morning America' this morning (04.03.14) and features a heavy dose of athletes.

Double-amputee snowboarding champion Amy Purdy, who will be partnered with professional dancer Derek Hough, long-distance swimmer Diana Nyad, and Olympic figure skaters Charlie White and Meryl Davis have all signed on to compete.

The cast is rounded out by the 'Wonder Years' star Danica McKellar, actor Billy Dee Williams, Big Time Rush singer James Maslow and Australian pop singer Cody Simpson.

This year co-host Brooke Burke-Charvet is being replaced by former contestant Erin Andrews and dancing professional Maksim Chmerkovskiy will be rejoining the programme.

Brooke good-humouredly joked about her dismissal along with musical director Rob Wheeler and his 28-strong backing band's last month.

She wrote on Twitter: ''So much chatter bout DWTS. I'm really cool, everyoneI did my 7 seasons, had a blast! I'm ready for change. I love your loyalty. Thank you!

''Here's the skinny - the show found out Harold Wheeler, the band, Rob & me were putting together our own road show, so they fired us all! (sic)''

'Dancing With The Stars' kicks off on March 17 on ABC.
