As ABC readies its list of acts confirmed for the new season of 'Dancing With The Stars' - they'll be announcing the names in full on July 27th - a familiar face in the shape of Bristol Palin has been hotly rumored for a return to the show, after it was confirmed that the latest series will be an all-star edition. This means that old guests will be allowed to compete, and so alongside Palin there'll most likely be one or two others back again - Palin if you remember managed to make the final of the Autumn 2010 edition of the competition.

Other names have been bandied about for possible inclusion in the final line-up, with the Washington Post throwing around celebs like former Spice Girls star Mel B, style expert Carson Kressley and actor Joey Lawrence, but it'll be Palin's return that would cause the most interest after a planned move into reality television completely bombed for the daughter of Sarah Palin.

'Bristol Palin: Life's A Trip' debuted to absolutely no excitement earlier in the year, with few interested in seeing what the daughter of a failed running partner was getting up to in her day to day to life. The show opened on Lifetime with a viewership of just 726,000 viewers, sinking to 586,000 the following week, thus prompting the network to move it from prime time to a late night slot.
