The next Dancing with the Stars will be car-crash telly with Lara Bingle and Brynne Edelsten coming our way.
The Herald Sun reports the two have signed on the dotted line.
Memo to Sonia Kruger: we’ll be expecting lots of irony please.
Edelsten, the shy and retiring wife of Geoffrey Edelsten, has been rumoured as a potential cast member before. Her over the top wedding attracted all sorts of headlines, photos, celebrities and gossip.
Lara Bingle proved an even bigger media magnet when her relationship with cricketer Michael Clarke went bungle.
Back in 2006 Bingle was a cast member on Dancing On Ice coming in sixth out of eight. This does raise questions about the original premise of Dancing with the Stars being celebrities who had never danced. But that’s been raised several times before (Nikki Webster, Toni Pearen etc) and the show still pulls a crowd.
For that matter the question of actually being a celebrity has been raised plenty. The train left that station yonks ago.
The show is set to be a mid-year series for Seven once again, expected around late May / June. Will Seven be forced to rest Sunday Night once again, or will Dancing shift from its 6:30 timeslot? Ask MasterChef.
