The Seven Network today announced the cast of the highly anticipated television event Dancing With The Stars: All Stars, coming soon to Channel 7 and 7plus.
In a world-first, returning fan favourites including six champions and four wildcard entrants will dance their hearts out for the coveted mirror ball trophy.
The stars, the glittery costumes, the ballroom drama, some amazing flashbacks to seasons past and – of course – the dancing are back for a brand-new, two-week special event that sees one of the world’s most-loved television shows refreshed, reimagined and reborn as a unique television event.
Leading the all-star cast is the very first Dancing With The Stars champion, Bec Hewitt, back to reclaim her crown after 17 years away from the spotlight.
Bec will be joined by fellow returning dance champions, including TV personality Tom Williams from season two (2005), Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou from season three (also in 2005), TV presenter Luke Jacobz from season eight (2008) and acclaimed chef Manu Feildel from season 11 (2011).
Other stars waltzing their way onto the dancefloor include radio star Fifi Box from season six (2007), actor Lincoln Lewis from season nine (2009), recent SAS Australia recruit Erin McNaught from season 12 (2012), interior designer Kyly Clarke from season 14 (2014) and TV presenter Jamie Durie also from season six (2007).
Competing alongside the returning all-stars will be wildcard entrants Schapelle Corby, TV and radio personality Matty Johnson, TV host Renee Bargh, and model and actress Jessica Gomes.
Seven Network Programming Director, Angus Ross, said: “This unmissable television event is sure to capture the heart of Australia, putting just the right amount of nostalgia on a brand new stage.
“We’ve assembled a cracking cast of winners, finalists, fan favourites and fascinating wildcards who are all ready to tear up the floor. We can’t wait.”
The hosts and judges for the spectacular Dancing With The Stars: All-Stars will be announced soon.
