2015 Dancing With The Stars cast confirmed

AFTER much speculation, Channel 7 has confirmed this year's cast of Dancing With The Stars.

The 2015 line-up of celebrities, who will learn to ballroom dance for charity, includes former Gold Coast Titans player Mat Rogers, Olympic gold medalist Matthew Mitcham and Tweed Heads-born supermodel Samantha Harris.

Special international guest judge Bruno Tonioli will join returning judges Todd McKenney, Helen Richey and Kym Johnson, who returns fresh from dancing on the 20th season of the US series.

Tonioli is an Italian choreographer and dancer who has previously served as a judge on Britain's Strictly Come Dancing with the US Dancing With The Stars.

Shane Bourne will helm the new season following the departure of long-time host Daniel MacPherson.

The new season will start soon on Channel 7.
