Jodie Sweetin is used to playing a Tanner on Fuller House, but now she’s going to have to get a little more familiar with spray tanner.

The actress known to millions as Stephanie Tanner is officially heading to Dancing with the Stars, she announced on Good Morning America on Wednesday.

Sweetin, 34, is just the first star to be announced as joining season 22 of the ABC reality dance competition.

“I would have loved to have done it in the past but it was a huge scheduling conflict with Fuller House at the time so I wasn’t able to do it, but I’m a huge fan of the show,” she said. “I’ve always loved to dance. Stephanie was a dancer on the show, I danced growing up, not as much as I would have liked to, I definitely don’t call myself a professional but I have some moves, I have some rhythm so I’ll be okay.”

She will be partnered with dance pro Keo Motsepe.

Her TV sister Candace Cameron-Burepreviously competed.

“She’s been really great and excited for me and has shared with me that this is going to be one of the most exciting, overwhelming, physically and mentally demanding things that I’ll ever do but that it’s incredibly worth it,” Sweetin said.

The rest of the cast will be announced on Good Morning America next week.

Season 22 of DWTS will premiere March 21 on ABC.
