Will Ten put on the dancing shoes?
THE rumours are true, Channel 10 could be the new home of Dancing with the Stars.
The celebrity talent show, which was axed by Seven in late 2016, is believed to be one of several light entertainment Ten is considering.
Grant Denyer, who won the show’s fourth season of the local version in 2006, was initially tipped to be host.
But that now seems doubtful with Grant signed up to front the Aussie version of Ellen DeGeneres’ Game of Games.
Program chief Beverley McGarvey is coy about Ten’s plans but admits they are thinking about the format.
“I’d never say that we wouldn’t have a look at it ( Dancing with the Stars). There have been so few strong formats in Australia and so at some point their time may or may not come again.”
The US version of Dancing with the Stars is still going strong after 26 seasons.
The show is filmed at CBS Television City in Los Angeles. Ten is now owned by CBS.
The Aussie version of Dancing with the Stars lasted 15 seasons before being canned.
The final season – won by Emma Freedman, pictured above – was hosted by comedian Shane Bourne after long-time host Daniel MacPherson pulled the pin.
A reboot of Blind Date, hosted by Julia Morris, is also rumoured to be on the way.
