Bindi Irwin first celebrity announced for US Dancing With The Stars

She might feel comfortable wearing khakis, but Bindi Irwin is going to have to get used to wearing sparkly sequins in her new role.

The 17-year-old Aussie has been announced as the first celebrity to join the new season of Dancing With The Stars in the United States.

During an appearance on Good Morning America, the teen gushed: ‘I am really, really excited and so honoured to be a part of this new journey and chapter in my life.’


‘It’s so different than anything I’ve ever done,’ she admitted. ‘I am used to wrangling crocodiles.’
