Former Celebrity Apprentice contestant Kym Johnson has confirmed she won’t be participating on the US series of Dancing with the Stars, ahead of her expected announcement as a judge on the Australian series.
“I will be taking the next season off from DWTS USA so that I may accept an amazing work opportunity back home in Australia,” she told US Magazine. “I am excited, nervous and humbled by this chance and look forward to sharing more about it with you soon.”
Seven has been busily casting the new series, which is expected to help drive Seven through to the end of the year.
With The X Factor already in place for Sundays and Mondays, it seems likely that Dancing will take up residence on either Tuesdays or Wednesdays.
It could all come full circle, given the show started out on a Tuesday night in October 2004, with Johnson as one of the resident dancers.
