  1. Always look forward to Dancing but hopefully I can unsee Lisa as Joanne Froggatt from Downton Abbey. When I watched Northshore on 10 a while ago, it took a few episodes to realise it was Lisa McCune! Talk about a doppelgänger!

  2. Seven have knocked it out of the park again this year. It’s really interesting that they have picked such a good cast, when I’m a Celeb has been struggling to get people into the jungle this year.
    Looking forward to seeing Ben’s redemption and if Ant can take orders, not just give them. Sammi and Lisa look absolutely stunning. I also hope we get to see more of Adam that we saw back in the days of House Rules. He has amazing charisma and personality.

  3. I wonder what Craig thinks of our version after coming from the big big production of Strictly Come Dancing? Last season of Dancing seemed very rushed and nearly over before it started to me. I love this show so want more more more!

  4. What a line-up, always enjoyed DWTS, all three versions too and thought last year getting back some of Ten’S judges was a big success. So Seven expect this to do better than even The Voice as well as Farmer? It’ll be interesting to look at all the different VOZ metrics now.

  5. What a wonderful line up of stars! It is good to see Lisa back on Seven where her career really took off with Blue Heelers and then Marshall Law and Forensic Investigators.
