Home and Away star, Ada Nicodemou, is returning to the ballroom with her original dance partner, Aric Yegudkin, when Channel Seven premieres Dancing With The Stars: All Stars later this year.
The Greek Australian mother-of-one was confirmed on Sunday as the first big name from the show’s past seasons to sign on for the anticipated ‘All Stars’ season.
“I basically told (Seven) that I wouldn’t do it without Aric,” Ada told The Daily Telegraph, while adding that at 43 years old, she was worried she was “too old” to return.
“But then I just thought: ‘You know what? Why not. It’s a challenge and that’s what life is all about at the end of the day. New challenges’.”
Ada, who won Dancing With The Stars in 2005, is one of five former champions rumoured to be taking part in the new season.
The other rumoured contestants for the All Stars series are Chris Hemsworth, Nikki Webster, Kerri-Anne Kennerley and Pauline Hanson. Whilst not confirmed, it is expected that more cast announcements will be made over the coming weeks in the lead up to the show.
