‘Home and Away’ Icon James Stewart to Waltz His Way onto ‘Dancing With the Stars’

James Stewart is on Dancing With the Stars

When it comes to wholesome television, no show does it better than Dancing With the Stars Australia. Week after week, we get to see Aussie celebrities go from novice dancers to borderline professionals. Better yet, the winner of this series wins $50,000 for a charity of their choosing. This year, the actor James Stewart will join the Dancing With the Stars cast and go on a heartwarming journey of his own. 

However, James isn’t guaranteed to win this series. He’s up against some professional athletes who have more experience competing. Not only is James taking on the AFL legend Shane Crawford, he’ll also be dance battling the former Olympian Nova Peris.

It remains to be seen if James is ready to take on such athletes. Here’s how his dance training has been unfolding this year.
