Dannii Minogue is dominating the hosting game – and we just can't get enough!

Earlier this year, the Aussie superstar was confirmed as the local host for Netflix's Ultimate Beastmaster – the streaming service's answer to Ninja Warrior.

TV Tonight reports Dannii is now fronting Channel 7's upcoming series Dance Boss.

The new show is said to be inspired by viral videos and sees dance crews formed in the workplace put through their paces by world-famous choreographers. They'll battle it out in front of three yet-to-be-named celebrities who will judge on entertainment factor alone.

"It's about people in the workplace who might have a dance crew together," Seven Programming boss Angus Ross tells TV Tonight.

"It's a chance for them to face-off. It's a big, shiny floor studio show and we have had some amazing auditions. They are incredible and they certainly put a smile on your face."

In the first season of Dance Boss we can expect ten amateur dance troupes take to the floor including: 'the doctors and nurses', 'the car salesmen', 'the airline staff', 'the printers', 'the marketing team', and 'the public servants'.

"This is not a comedy show," the original casting call read. "It's a show that celebrates the human passion for dance."

Meanwhile, Dannii has also revealed she's been in talks for a potential return to Home And Away.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph in February, Dannii admits the show's bosses have been in touch.

"'[The producers have] definitely made contact," she says.

"'[But] If I did it, I'd want it to be short and sharp, in and out, because those schedules are huge."

On reprising her role as Emma Jackson, Dannii adds: "I was thinking about it, actually – could it be like an American soap opera, where I come back as [old character] Emma Jackson's sister?

"Like when someone goes upstairs, or dies, and they come back as someone else. I want it to be kind of kooky if it does happen."

Dannii is yet to comment on her Dance Boss gig, but we're sure her announcement will be as glam as she is!
