BINDI’S HOPING THE US WILL GO WILD OVER HER DANCING WITH THE STARS

-

BINDIB Irwin is set to appear on the US seasons of Dancing With the Stars.

The 17-year-old wildlife warrior is the first celebrity announced for season 21 of the hit reality show.

While Bindi (pictured) usually calls the Sunshine Coast home, she will head off to Los Angeles temporaril­y when filming commences. She may miss her family, including mother Terri and brother Bob while she is away, but it will mean she is closer to her boyfriend, US wakeboarde­r Chandler Powell.

Bindi has never been shy about being in the public eye. As well as appearing on TV since the tender age of two, she has also starred in several films.

Whether her role on such a highprofil­e TV show will launch her career even further in the US remains to be seen but appearing in the 18th season certainly didn’t hurt Gold Coast 18year-old Cody Simpson. He was on the show in 2014 and has gone on to become one of our biggest Aussie exports.
