Former Dancing with the Stars competitors Hayley Holt and Stefano Olivieri have been named as judges on TV3's forthcoming new series of the reality show.
Holt, a former competitive dancer now better known as a presenter for Sky Sport, competed in three seasons of the TVNZ version of the show between 2006-08.
As a dancer, Olivieri and his partners won the previous competition twice.
They will join former
Dancing with the Stars
presenter Candy Lane on the judging panel for the show.
Holt and Lane go way back.
"I started in Candy's jazz dance classes at eight years old, so for me it's like working with family."
The first "star" to compete is radio personality Jay-Jay Harvey who has been partnered with dancer Enrique Johns.
Earlier, MediaWorks announced Dominic Bowden and Sharyn Casey will host the series, which will feature 10 Kiwi celebrities being partnered by top dancers.
The other competitors will be named on Monday during that night's X Factor NZ episode.
