Too much sparkle, nowhere near enough substance, and yet here we are again – the new season of Dancing With The Stars is almost upon us. The confusing thing is I understood Channel 7 had already released the air date of the first program, and yet now we have a release telling us that it starts in two weeks. I can’t keep up anymore. From the press release:

Channel Seven today confirmed the first episode of DANCING WITH THE STARS will go to air on April 15 LIVE from 6.30pm.

The celebrity dancers, who this year include a solo yachtswoman, 80s rock legend and international DJ, are all busy training in the dance studio as they prepare for their big reveal on April 15.

The group will kick up their heels alongside host Daniel MacPherson and his new co-host, the sensational Mel B, with judges Helen Richey, Todd McKenney and Joshua Horner returning with a keen eye.
