Polish Your Dancing Shoes — We Finally Know the Start Date for Dancing With the Stars: All Stars
We’ve met the sparkly cast and now we have a start date for the all-new Dancing With the Stars: All Stars.
Premiering on April 11, some of your favourite past contestants are back for a brand-new, two-week special that sees one of the world’s most-loved television shows refreshed, reimagined and reborn as a unique television event.
For this extravaganza, the celebrities will be divided into two groups, taking to the stage on alternate nights across the season. The leaderboard will then be determined by a combination of judges’ scores and scores from the studio audience, with eliminations in every episode and ultimately six couples will make it through to the grand finale.
After 17 years away from the spotlight, fan-favourite and reigning champion of Dancing With the Stars, Bec Hewitt will be returning, alongside fellow dance champions, TV personality Tom Williams from season two (2005), Home and Away star Ada Nicodemou from season three (also in 2005), TV presenter Luke Jacobz from season eight (2008) and acclaimed chef Manu Feildel from season 11 (2011) alongside SAS Australia’s Schappelle Corby and The Bachelor’s Matty J Johnson confirmed as wild cards.
Joining the cast are DWTS OGs, Daryl Somers, Sonia Kruger plus the original judges Helen Richey, Todd McKenney, Paul Mercurio and Mark Wilson.
“This unmissable television event is sure to capture the heart of Australia, putting just the right amount of nostalgia on a brand new stage,” Seven Network Programming Director, Angus Ross, said in a statement.
“We’ve assembled a cracking cast of winners, finalists, fan favourites and fascinating wildcards who are all ready to tear up the floor. We can’t wait.”
