Seven unveils cast for the latest Dancing With The Stars: All Stars

Seven will air another All Stars edition of Dancing With The Stars in 2022, revealing a lineup full of former series winners and contestants for next year.

Previous winners including TV personality Grant Denyer (Season 4, 2006), actress Bridie Carter (Season 7, 2007) and former AFL players David Rodan (Season 14, 2014) and Anthony Koutoufides (Season 5, 2006) will all return in 2022.

Daryl Somers and Sonia Kruger will once again host the format, with other returning stars to include singer-songwriter Ricki-Lee (Season 14, 2014), The Morning Show co-host Kylie Gillies (Season 9, 2009) and entertainer Courtney Act (Season 16, 2019).

Actress Olympia Valance (Season 16, 2019), reality TV star Angie Kent (Season 17, 2020) and actor and entertainer Rob Mills (Season 9, 2009) are also on board.

There are some wildcard contestants making their Dancing With The Stars debuts. They include Sunrise weatherman Sam Mac, model and TV presenter Kris Smith, music artist Deni Hines and actor Cameron Daddo.

The format returned to Seven in 2021 as Dancing With The Stars: All Stars, after Ten chose not to renew it. Prior to that, the program ran for 15 seasons on Seven between 2004 and 2016.

The decision paid off, as the format delivered its biggest launch since 2015 and brought in solid linear metro ratings throughout the season, culminating in a winner reveal watched by 827,000 metro viewers.

Seven Network programming director, Angus Ross, said: “The first season of All Stars was the perfect mix of entertainment, celebrity and fierce competition, proving a stand-out hit with Australian audiences. 

“We have a fantastic cast ready to hit the dancefloor for season two. With a history of multiple perfect scores in the ranks, it’s going to be a brilliant series.”

Todd McKenney, Helen Richey, Paul Mercurio and Mark Wilson will once again serve on the judging panel for the format which is produced by Warner Bros International Television Production Australia and BBC Studios.
