After the news earlier this week that Shane Bourne was replacing Daniel MacPherson as host of Dancing With the Stars, we’ve been eagerly awaiting the names of the celebrities that would be involved this season.
And now, thanks to a promo that Channel 7 has been running, Matthew Mitcham has been revealed as the first celebrity to join the show this season.
In the promo, it describes the first revealed celebrity as: “He is a gold medal Olympian, who holds an all-time record in the pool — but he has been doing something else while no one’s watching, now it’s time for you to see who is Dancing with the Stars.”
Matthew won gold for Australia at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. He is also openly gay and media circles are whispering of a potential first ever male/male partnership on the show.
