Schapelle on DWTS: All Stars

The All Stars iteration is unlike the show's traditional format and is being touted by Channel 7 as a 'brand-new, two-week special event' that blends the ballroom competition with flashbacks to previous seasons.

Leading the 'all stars' group is Home and Away's Bec, who took out the top spot in the 2004 season debut, as well as season two champ, TV personality Tom Williams and Bec's former co-star and season three winner Ada Nicodemou.

Another Home and Away alum, Luke Jacobz (who won season eight) and MKR's Manu Feildel (who won season 11) round out the champions contingent.

Also polishing up their dance shoes are former contestants radio star Fifi Box (season six), Home and Away's Lincoln Lewis (season nine), recent SAS Australia recruit Erin McNaught (season 12), interior designer Kyly Clarke (season 14) and gardening guru Jamie Durie (season six).

They'll be battling it out with four wildcard entrants: former Bachie star Matty Johnson, TV host Renee Bargh, model/actress Jessica Gomes and convicted drug smuggler Schapelle.

News of Schapelle's new TV gig received a mixed response on social media, with many users airing their opinions on the casting choice in the comments section on the official DWTS Instagram account.

"Dancing with convicted drug smugglers? I’m out," wrote one.

"So I can go to jail, then I'm considered a star? Geez, I really need to look at my life choices better..." added another.

"I thought it was about previous celebrities? Just lost a viewer," said a third.

Over on Schapelle's account, the feedback was more encouraging.

"Yaaaayyy... you’re going to be amazing. Can’t wait to watch," wrote a fan.

"Yay congrats beautiful lady," added Candice Warner, Schapelle's former SAS co-star.

The show's hosts and judges have yet to be revealed.

Dancing With The Stars: All Stars is coming soon to Channel 7 and 7plus.
