The second season of Channel 10’s Dancing With The Stars will return in February.
And among the cast of celebrity contestants is Olivia Newton-John’s daughter Chloe Lattanzi.
The 33-year-old may have a slight edge over the competition due to her background as a dancer.

While the blonde beauty doesn’t have any training in the ballroom dancing that’s performed on the show, she does have a personal passion for pole dancing.
Chloe regularly attends pole dancing classes at the Diva Den Studio, crediting it for helping her stay fit and even likening it to ‘therapy’.
‘I love to move my body,’ she explained in December. ‘It its therapy for me.’
In 2017, she said: ‘Dancing is my true place. Where all masks are removed and my naked heart is filled with passion an unapologetic sensuality.’

Chloe certainly isn’t the first Dancing With The Stars contestant with a dance background, with the American version of the show often casting celebrities with backgrounds in dance and performance.

Speaking to The Daily Telegraph on Tuesday, Eurovision star Dami said she was nervous to start the challenging reality show.
‘This is my opportunity to really step out of my comfort zone and see how far I can take it,’ the singer said.
‘I’m nervous knowing that I have two left feet but am looking forward to giving it a good go.’
Doing it for Olivia: ‘My mum has been a warrior these past few years and I’m dancing for her, to show her how far she and I have come as mother and daughter,’ Chloe said

Meanwhile, Chloe said she wanted to do it for her Grease actress mother Olivia Newton-John, who is currently battling cancer.
‘My mum has been a warrior these past few years and I’m dancing for her, to show her how far she and I have come as mother and daughter.’
In April last year, actor Samuel Johnson was crowned winner of the last season despite drag queen Courtney Act being the bookies favourite to win.
Astonished by the win, the actor confessed he was stunned by the victory.
‘I just want to say, Courtney is the better dancer!’ he said
Despite the show’s hiatus for a number of years, it appeared to be well-received by audiences last year.
