Olivia Newton-John has teared up watching her daughter, Chloe Lattanzi, make her debut on Dancing With The Stars. 

The 71-year-old Australian actress looked proud as punch as she sat in the audience alongside her husband, John Easterling, watching Chloe dance with her partner, Gustavo Viglio.

Presenter Amanda Keller asked the Grease star how she felt watching her daughter take to the dancefloor, with Olivia instantly getting emotional. 

“Oh my goodness I’m so proud. I’m so proud and my heart is beating so fast,” Olivia said. 

“I’m trying not to cry. You were so beautiful darling. You did such a wonderful job. It was just gorgeous.”

Chloe looked like she was holding back tears herself as her mum gushed over her performance, turning to Amanda and asking her if she could hug her mum. 

The pair then embraced, with Chloe also giving a loving glance in John Easterling’s direction. 

Channel 10’s Dancing With The Stars got off to a risque start last night, with former Married At First Sight star Dean Wells taking to the stage to shake it to MC Hammer's U Can't Touch This.

Dean donned a hi-vis vest and held a fake glittery jack hammer in his hands as he started his routine. 

Dean and Chloe also danced alongside Claudia Karvan, Ed Kavalee, Celia Pacquola, Travis Cloke, Dami Im, Angie Kent, Beau Ryan and Christian Wilkins.

Under the watchful eye of the three judges – Sharna Burgess, Tristan MacManus and Craig Revel Horwood - they all battled it out to dance and beat the risk of elimination.
