The new season of Dancing With The Stars will see celebrities, glittery costumes and magical moves make their way back to the dancefloor premiering Sunday, 18 June on Channel Seven and 7plus.
Hosted by Daryl Somers and Sonia Kruger, the new season will see a brand new batch of celebrities compete for their chosen charity and the Dancing With The Stars mirror ball trophy.
Triple TV Week Gold Logie award-winner, Daryl Somers, rose to national fame as the host and executive producer of the long-running comedy-variety show Hey Hey It’s Saturday.
