Confirming the news on her social media, Dami expressed her excitement – and nervousness – at taking part in the upcoming season, which premieres on Sunday 9th February. Dami will be paired with professional dancer Shae Mountain.
However, Dami is not the only link to Eurovision in this years DWTS lineup. Chloe Lattanzi, daughter of Olivia Newton-John (United Kingdom 1974) will also be taking part. Last year, fresh from her performance at Australia Decides, Courtney Act took the competition by storm.
