The Vicar of Dibley actress and longtime comedy performer will be one of four judges on the revamped show set to launch later this year.

“Dawn is widely recognised and adored by Australians and her contribution to the show will deliver on our promise for a bigger and better series,” Channel Nine head Michael Healy said of French’s appointment.

The other celebrity confirmed already for this year’s show is former Spice Girl Mel B.
