The judges are revealed! Todd McKenney, Helen Richey and Mark Wilson will judge the celebs this season. (Channel Seven)
Jamie Durie - 4th, season 6
Todd: "We've all seen his Manpower photos... and it seems like he still has the goods! He almost got to the end in 2007, let's see if he can win it this time!"
Manu Feildel - won season 11
Todd: "Manu proved he's not only a whiz in the kitchen on season 11, so I'll be keeping my eye on this French master chef!"
The judges have plenty of thoughts on this year's lineup. (Channel Seven)
Schapelle Corby - wildcard
Mark: "Schapelle's gritty determination, which she showed on SAS Australia, will pull her through. Who knows, it might be her time to shine!"
Tom Williams - won season 2
Mark: "He's lost nothing in fitness over the years so he'll be hard to topple. The girls love him, the blokes love him and... he can dance! Good luck, mate!"
Matty J - wildcard
Todd: "After seeing this Bachelor hunk's sizzling performance in the All New Monty in 2019, he absolutely could be a strong contender."
Kyly Clarke - 9th, season 14
Todd: "She was forced to bow out very early on due to an injury in 2014, so Kyly has some unfinished business to attend to – I can't wait to see it!"
Lincoln Lewis - 7th, season 9
Helen: "He's my top pick to take home the mirror ball trophy! Even though he placed seventh in 2009, he's grown so much and is fitter than ever, too!"
Does OG winner Bec Hewitt still have what it takes? (Channel Seven)
Renee Bargh - wildcard
Todd: "She's proven she can command the stage on The Voice Australia, but can she take centre stage on the ballroom? My guess is an absolute yes!"
Ada Nicodemou - won season 3
Todd: "She's so quick on her feet, and I loved her season of the show. I have a feeling she's going to be pretty hard to beat this time around..."
Luke Jacobz - won season 8
Helen: "He got some of the strongest scores on his dances back in 2008, and watching him now on Home And Away, I know he hasn't lost that spark!"
Erin McNaught is giving it another shot. (Instagram)
Erin Mcnaught - placed 11th, season 12
Todd: "She may have been eliminated first in Season 12, but I think she's learned a lot over the last 10 years, and being married to rapper Example can't hurt her rhythm."
Fifi Box - 2nd, season 6
Helen: "She's my third pick to take it home! Fifi is a little pocket rocket and her partner Jeremy Garner is a Latin specialist, so watch out guys!"
Bec Hewitt - won season 1
Mark: "It's been a very long time since she danced, but I've never forgotten her 'X Factor'. She's going to be hard to beat. No pressure, Bec!"
Jessica Gomes - wildcard
Helen: "While she may be new to the dance floor, I already know she's going to be a strong dancer by the way she moves when she models."
