Just days after announcing she was the first celebrity set to reprise her dancing shoes for the highly anticipated Dancing With The Stars: All Stars edition, Home And Away favourite Ada Nicodemou has shared the very first glimpse from rehearsals.
On Thursday night the 43-year-old took to her Instagram page to share a candid selfie with her dance partner Aric Yegudkin.
"First day of dance rehearsal with @aricyegudkin and my body is already KILLING me! But still smiling 😀," Ada captioned the stunning behind-the-scenes photo, which showed her in activewear as she cuddled up to her old colleague and dance instructor Aric Yegudkin.
Ada's Home And Away co-star Bridie Carter was quick to wish her luck, writing: "Have the best fun ever Ada!!!! Lucky you!!!! Xxx."
Aric also shared a sweet selfie from their first rehearsal session, and mused: ''First sesh back with this one @adanicodemou @dancingau @channel7.''
Ada and Aric first won the coveted Dancing With The Stars mirror ball trophy in 2005 on season three of the reality TV show. The powerhouse duo also went on to claim the "Champion of Champions" title that year in a friendly face off against season two champions Tom Williams and Kym Johnson.
And now, the dance duo are set to reunite as the first official pair for the upcoming DWTS: All Stars series.
The exciting news was first announced on Sunday with the actress sharing a string of amazing throwback pics from decades earlier.
"Who would've thought that 16 years later I'd put putting my dancing shoes back on. My original dance-partner and i @aricyegudkin are doing @dancingau again!!! 💃🏼🕺🏻," she said.
"We are beyond excited and can't wait to find out who the rest of the cast is. Don't you love the old shots? Made me both laugh and cringe 😬 🤣 #dancingwiththestars @channel7."
While no other names have been officially shared, other stars in the mix include Chris Hemsworth, Tom Williams and Bec Hewitt.
Dancing With The Stars: All Stars is coming soon to Channel 7 and 7plus.
