This season’s wildcard entrants are Sam Mac, Deni Hines and Home and Away star Cameron Daddo, who are set to shimmy and shake things up as this season’s dance floor dark horses.

Seven Network Programming Director, Angus Ross, said: ‘The first season of All Stars was the perfect mix of entertainment, celebrity and fierce competition, proving a stand-out hit with Australian audiences.

‘We have a fantastic cast ready to hit the dancefloor for season two. With a history of multiple perfect scores in the ranks, it’s going to be a brilliant series.’
