The sequins, sambas, spins and swirls made a spectacular return to screen in tonight’s premiere of Dancing With The Stars: All Stars on Channel 7 and 7plus

Tonight, after meeting all 14 celebrities, the stars were divided into two groups set to take the stage over alternate weeks.

Kicking off the series with a very colourful performance, TV presenter and race car driver Grant Denyer was as cool as ice in his cha-cha, scoring a total of 26. 

But Ricki-Lee set the bar higher with a top-scoring total of 34, including the first 10 of the series for her own cha-cha. Judge Todd McKenney declared she, “pulled the light and only let it shine on her”. 

Hot on Ricki-Lee’s heels was Bridie Carter, who scored 33 for her graceful and dreamy slow foxtrot; while Anthony Koutoufides’ footwork as he embraced the Viennese waltz couldn’t be ignored – even if Todd thought he was foxtrotting. 

Despite putting their best foot forward, the two wildcards – Cameron Daddo and Kris Smith – found themselves at the bottom of the leader board. Sadly, Cameron became the first celebrity to bid farewell to the dancefloor.

The final scores of the night were: 

Ricki-Lee and Jarryd Byrne – 34

Bridie Carter and Craig Monley – 33

Anthony Koutoufides and Jessica Raffa – 30

Kylie Gillies and Aric Yegudkin – 29

Grant Denyer and Lily Cornish – 26

Cameron Daddo and Megan Wragg – 23

Kris Smith and Siobhan Power – 19
