Three-time MasterChef contestants Hayden Quinn and Julie Goodwin, who won the show’s inaugural season in 2009, will also be going head-to-head on the dance floor. The pair previously competed against one another on MasterChef All-Stars in 2012.

Meanwhile, Home and Away actor James Stewart will be putting his best foot forward alongside pop star Samantha Jade, who is hoping to replicate her success on The X Factor 12 years ago.


Rounding out the cast is four-time Gold Logie-winning actress Lisa McCune, Better Homes and Gardens presenter Adam Dovile, fashion designer and model Nadia Bartel, Olympian and former senator Nova Peris, and comedian Nikki Osborne.

Each contestant will be competing for a charity of their choice, as well as the chance to win the iconic Mirror Ball Trophy.

Dancing With The Stars is certainly not the first reality show many of these celebrities have appeared on.

In addition to MasterChef stars Hayden Quinn and Julie Goodwin, Nova Peris previously competed on Australian Survivor in 2019, Adam Doville got his start on House Rules in 2014, Shane Crawford and Samantha Jade appeared on Celebrity Apprentice in 2011 and 2022, respectively, and Nikki Osborne challenged herself on I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here! in 2020.

Speaking of I’m A Celebrity, the show’s former host Dr Chris Brown will be joining Sonia Kruger on DWTS as her co-host for the very first time, replacing Daryl Somers.

The judging panel for season 21 will also be made up of Craig Revel Horwood, Sharna Burgess, Helen Richey and Mark Wilson, with Todd McKenny leaving the show.

Dancing With The Stars is coming soon to Channel Seven.
