By
Darcey Bussell has reportedly signed up for at least another year of Strictly Come Dancing.

The ballerina has extended her current one-year contract after impressing producers of the BBC show, reports The Sun.

Bussell apparently signed up for two years back in the summer, as she was moving her family to the UK from Australia for the show.

However, producers had a clause in the contract where she could have been dropped, but it would allegedly have cost them an extra £100,000 for the second year.

An insider has claimed that Bussell will definitely return on the judging panel next year with Len Goodman, Bruno Tonioli and Craig Revel Horwood, saying: "Her first outing divided people, but she has grown into the role tremendously."

Bussell recently revealed that she was shocked by her repetition of the phrase "Yah? Yah?" after every remark on the show.

Strictly Come Dancing continues this Saturday (November 24) at 6.40pm on BBC One.
