'Dancing with the Stars' cast spoilers: Nancy Kerrigan and Fifth Harmony member reportedly competing

Dancing with the Stars viewers will reportedly get to watch Nancy Kerrigan and a member of Fifth Harmony compete on the upcoming season.
According to a source, Kerrigan, an iconic figure skater of the 1990s, and one of four remaining girls in the group Fifth Harmony have signed on for Season 24 of Dancing with the Stars, Variety reported.
Kerrigan won the bronze medal at the 1992 Olympics and the silver medal at the 1994 games. But in 1994, Kerrigan had to overcome a knee injury when she was attacked with a police baton by an assailant hired by the ex-husband of her ice skating rival Tonya Harding.
Although Kerrigan was forced to withdraw from the U.S. Championships, her team agreed one of the two spots on the Olympic team belonged to her. Since then, the athlete has acted in small movie and TV roles.
Fifth Harmony is the all-girl group currently taking over the world, as they have hits including "Work from Home," "Worth it," "Sledgehammer," and "Miss Movin' On."
Camila Cabello recently left the group -- which was discovered on The X Factor -- so Fifth Harmony now consists of Ally Brooke, Normani Kordei, Dinah Jane, and Lauren Jauregui. It's reportedly unclear which member of Fifth Harmony will be competing on Dancing with the Stars this spring.
The five girls auditioned on The X Factor's second season separately as solo artists, but executive producer and judge Simon Cowell decided to make them into a band for the show's "Group" category. They ended up finishing in third place.
Biles and Mr. T, whose real name is Laurence Tureaudare, were the first celebrities leaked prior to ABC's official cast announcement Wednesday, March 1 on Good Morning America. ABC declines comment on casting rumors until then.
