Dancing with the stars‘ Cheryl Burke has thrown her hat into the ring for a judging job, after Len Goodman resigned.
Judge said goodbye to the American version of the show after its final season, six years after leaving Come dance strictly in the UK, while Burke also made his final appearance as the show’s professional celebrity partner.
The timing seems perfect for Burke to do an Anton Du Beke and return as a judge for next season, but while she won’t confirm whether or not that’s the case, she said People that she is definitely up for it.

“I think the whole world knows at this point that I would really like to. But that’s not for me to decide,” she told the publication.
“What depends on me is my future, and I know it’s time for me to move on and see what else is out there. Because there is life after Dancing with the stars, so I heard. I do not know yet. I’ll keep you up-to-date.”
People notes that Burke has made comments in other interviews that hinted at talks for another major TV project, and that she wanted to have more time off in order to devote herself to a wellness-focused dance program and mental health.

Dancing with the stars‘ final season, its 31st overall and the first to air exclusively on Disney+, wrapped earlier this week and saw social media personality Charli D’Amelio crowned the winner.
The season’s judging panel included Goodman, Derek Hough, Carrie Ann Inaba and Bruno Tonioli. It will be interesting to see if they replace Goodman with a woman, Burke or not, to even things out.
