In another reality TV coo for Channel 7 in 2021, Dancing With the Stars is returning to the network with an all-stars edition.
Joining Big Brother, The Voice, Australian Idol and Farmer Wants a Wife, the all toe-tapping, shoe-shuffling sparkly series is making a return after it was rebooted by Network Ten in 2019.
Seven’s original iteration aired between 2004 and 2016 and saw a host of celebrities twirl their way around the dancefloor.
The two-week television event sees former champions and fan favourites quick-stepping back onto the dancefloor for a second shot at the coveted mirror ball trophy.
Stars such as Ada Nicodemou, Bec Cartwright, Tom Williams, Grant Denyer, Kate Ceberano, Bridie Carter, Luke Jacobz, Manu Feildel and Johnny Ruffo all won the coveted disco ball statue, while other highlights included Rachel Finch finding love with her dance partner Mike Miziner and Chris Hemsworth, well, dancing.
With stars as big as these, it’s no wonder Seven wanted to start with a bang.
So, who is re-joining the cast this year?
Here is the cast of Dancing With the Stars: All Stars Australia 2021.
Season 2 Champion, Tom Williams, will trade real estate for Rumba when he makes his way back into the ballroom with dance partner Alexandra Vladmirov.
In 2005, Williams and his dance partner Kym Johnson defeated runners up Ian Roberts and Holly Brisley to take out the DWTS title. The pair received perfect scores for their Quickstep and their iconic Freestyle in which Tom danced shirtless to Leave Your Hat On and Kiss.
Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou is returning to the ballroom with her original dance partner Aric Yegudkin.
Ada and Aric were season three champions in 2005 and also went on to claim the “Champion of Champions” title that year in a friendly face-off against season two champions Tom Williams and Kym Johnson.
Radio broadcaster and TV presenter, Fifi Box, announced to her Fox listeners that she is participating in Dancing With the Stars: All Stars.
Box was runner up to Kate Ceberano in 2007 (Season 6).
Former Home and Away actress Bec Hewitt was the first ever celebrity to take home the DWTS trophy, and now the mum-of-three is heading back to the dance floor for another shot at glory.
TV presenter and actor Luke Jacobz competed in season eight of the reality dance show back in 2008.
Celebrity chef Manu Feildel is returing to the stage after competing on DWTS for season 11.
Season nine competitor, actor Lincoln Lewis, is dancing his way back into the competition.
The season 12 participant most recently impressed Aussie audiences with her grit and determination on SAS Australia and now Erin McNaught is coming back for another shot at the DWTS crown.
The interior designer competed in season 14 in 2014.
TV presenter Jamie Durie was a competitor on season six of the reality series.
SAS Australia participent Schapelle Corby, TV and radio personality Matty Johnson, TV host Renee Bargh, and model and actress Jessica Gomes are also joining the all-stars cast as wildcard entrants.
The hosts and judges for the spectacular Dancing With The Stars: All Stars will be announced soon.
