The only confirmed stars to be joining the show so far are Home and Away actress Ada Nicodemou, former Daily Edition host Tom Williams and Fox FM radio presenter Fifi Box.

Other rumoured cast members include Luke Jacobz, Lincoln Lewis, Bec Hewitt and Erin McNaught.

Last week, Fifi Box spilled on joining the show, joking that she “hasn’t left this chair” for two-and-a-half years since before the birth of her daughter Daisy.

“Fitness has not been my thing for the past two or three years. I haven’t done much … so surprise, surprise, I am about to hit the dancefloor,” she told co-hosts Brendan Fevola and Nick Cody.

“It’s been 14 years since I was on the dancefloor, it’s a long time between dances … I am back baby!” she added, explaining of her time on the show: “Being on Dancing With The Stars back in 2007, it was one of the highlights of my life. I loved it so much, it was this incredible experience.

“I don’t know who else is going to be in it, I don’t know a lot of things, but I do know I have a dancer and his name is Jeremy. I don’t know if he knows what he’s up against,” she joked.

Fifi was runner up to Kate Ceberano on season 6 in 2007.

As for Ada Nicodemou, she is returning to the ballroom with her original dance partner Aric Yegudkin.

The pair were season 3 champions in 2005, defeating Seven News presenter Chris Bath and Australian Idol judge Ian ‘Dicko’ Dickson.

As for Corby, she last appeared on Australian televisions when she joined the cast of SAS Australia in 2020.

While she was everyone at home’s favourite contestant to watch, she didn’t make it past the second episode.
