A former Bachelorette and a MAFS star: The lineup for Dancing With the Stars 2020 has been announced.

Just when you thought there weren’t any Aussie celebrities left for a stint on reality TV, the lineup is announced for Dancing With the Stars 2020.

Channel 10 pulled back the curtain this evening to reveal who’ll be slipping into the sequins and sweatily twirling their way around the studio in the name of Instagram followers…. sorry, their chosen charity.

Yes, it’s the typical mix of singers, actors, comedians, footy players and ex-dating show contestants, including Claudia Karvan, ladies and gentlemen.
