Cassandra Thorburn has seen her name splashed across the news for some pretty personal and explosive reasons recently following her messy split from ex-husband and ex-host of The Today Show Karl Stefanovic.

But today it seems that the former journalist is making headlines for a much more light hearted and exciting reason with news surfacing that she is reportedly set to take part in a reality TV show!

Turns out that Cassandra is reaching for her dancing shoes with reports that she will be a contestant on the new and revamped season of Dancing With The Stars on Network Ten.

This morning entertainment reporter Peter Ford, who always has a piece of juicy goss for us, spoke exclusively with Kyle and Jackie O during Jackie’s O News in order to reveal the exclusive information.

“Peter Ford is joining us from Melbourne this morning because he’s going to tell us the line-up of Dancing With The Stars,” introduced Jackie.


Mr Ford revealed that he had found out the exclusive information through a little birdie following a photoshoot that took place involving the entire cast of celebrities.

“We’re not going to be popular you know by revealing this,” he said. “There was a photoshoot that took place last week so now all the celebrities know who all the other celebrities are and the word is getting around.”

He went on to list a bunch of names but he saved the best one for last.

“Okay the big finish, drumroll!” continued Peter. “Cassandra Thorburn. Karl’s ex!”

Jackie’s reaction basically sums up how surprised we all we by this announcement!

“Oh sh*t!!!”


Other celebs joining Cassandra on this season include actor Samuel Johnson, fitness guru Michelle Bridges and Chef from The Living Room Miguel Maestre.
