Claudia Karvan, Ed Kavalee, Celia Pacquola and Dami Im are amongst those joining 10’s second season of Dancing with the Stars.
They join Angie Kent, Beau Ryan, Chloe Lattanzi, Dean Wells, Travis Cloke and Christian Wilkins in a youthful cast who will foxtrot, rumba, cha-cha and waltz for chosen charities.
Amanda Keller and Grant Denyer return as hosts for the season, staged Live in Melbourne, from Sunday February 9.
Claudia Karvan’s name is synonymous with iconic Australian dramas including Love My Way and The Secret Life Of Us, but stepping out of the acting world and into the dancing world could be her greatest challenge yet. Will she be able to put her acting skills to good use, or will a real-life drama unfold before our eyes?
Joining Claudia are resident jokesters Ed Kavalee and Celia Pacquola, who will be hoping that they don’t become the butt of everyone’s jokes as they attempt to quickstep their way to the mirror ball trophy.
Fresh off the plane from America we have actress and performer, Chloe Lattanzi. The daughter of Australia’s sweetheart, Olivia Newton-John, Chloe is no stranger to the spotlight. Chloe is ready and waiting in the wings to put her musical and acting talents to good use.
Known for being wrapped up in controversy, a highly publicised cheating scandal, and a marriage at first sight, reality TV star Dean Wells will be officially waltzing away from the dramatic dinner parties, and cha-cha-chaing his way onto the dancefloor.
After playing 256 AFL games and winning a premiership, you’d think Travis Cloke has jumped over his fair share of hurdles throughout his career. But his biggest one awaits when he attempts to swap the footy boots for dancing shoes.
Singing sensation Dami Im is no stranger to the stage having represented Australia at Eurovision Song Contest 2016. But, just how will this self-confessed unco fare on the dance floor?
Fresh from finding love, Australia’s favourite bachelorette, Angie Kent, will be swapping roses for rumba, and cocktail parties for dance parties. Will she literally fall head over heels, or will she spin her way to a win?
And not one to shy away from a challenge, The Amazing Race Australia host Beau Ryan will be hoping that he’s picked up some dancing skills on his recent worldwide adventures.
Last, but definitely not least, podcast guru, model, socialite, TV presenter and son of TV royalty Richard Wilkins, Christian Wilkins is no stranger to the entertainment world. But is he ready for a challenge of a different kind?
Hosted by 10’s dazzling dynamic duo Amanda Keller and Grant Denyer, Dancing With The Stars sees ten illustrious celebrities paired with professional dancers to compete in a dance competition oozing glitz and glamour, to win $50,000 for their chosen charity.
Under the watchful eye of our three judges – Craig Revel Horwood, Sharna Burgess and Tristan MacManus – the pressure is on to ensure the celebrities don’t put a foot wrong and risk elimination.
So, get ready because it’s going to be one hell of a dance off!
Dancing With The Stars is produced by Warner Bros. International Television Production Australia and BBC Studios, from a format created by the BBC and distributed by BBC Studios.
7:30pm Sunday February 9 on 10.
