It's back! Dancing with the Stars to return to NZ screens in 2018

More drama, feathers and sequins than you can shake your tail feather at.

MediaWorks has announced that Dancing with the Stars will be returning to our screens in 2018.

Sharyn Casey is back to host another season and this time she'll be joined by Dai Henwood.

The show has given us some moments to remember over the years. Not all of them good. Who could forget Rodney Hide dropping his partner Krystal Stuart, or Hayley Holt and Brendon Pongia's awkward TV and radio interviews after an all nighter following their elimination.

But there have been some good moments too. Shane Cortese and Nerida Lister met on the show when they were partnered together. They fell in love and have since married and had three children.

The last season was won by Simon Barnett. The Bachelor NZ's Crystal Chenery was runner up.

Other previous winners were former All Black Norm Hewitt, former Miss New Zealand Lorraine Downes, infomercial queen Suzanne Paul, former Silver Fern Temepara George and TV personality and now MP Tamati Coffey.

We can't wait to see what stars will be putting their names forward for this season. We're picking Vicky Gleeson-Stokes from Married at First Sight NZ, the Bachelor NZ runner up Lily McManus and maybe even recently retired MP Peter Dunne.

Bring on the cringe!
