Cassandra Thorburn confirms new reality TV gig – and she looks amazing!

Cassandra Thorburn confirms new reality TV gig – and she looks amazing!

Cassandra Thorburn has announced a mega comeback after her bitter split from former Today show host Karl Stefanovic.

The mother-of-three has confirmed that she will be a contestant on the newly revamped Dancing With The Stars.

Speaking to the Herald Sun, Thorburn said: “Once we get into learning the choreography of something and going over and over that dance, that is going to get physically demanding."

Adding of her fitness levels: “I have lots of stairs at my house, like a lot of stairs. I have like 96 stairs to get to my house so I’m up and down those a lot.”

Thorburn, 47,  has been a tabloid favourite ever since she and Stefanovic announced their separation in 2016 after 21 years of marriage.

Stefanovic, 44, went on to marry fashion designer Jasmine Yarbrough, 34, in a lavish ceremony held in Mexico in December, only a few days before he was sacked from his role as Today show presenter.

But Thorburn is moving forward, as the former journalist prepares to face off against actor Samuel Johnson and former West Indies cricketer Curtly Ambrose.

“I decided to do it because it was one of the last conversations I had with my dad before he passed away,” she said.

“It had been offered to me and first I thought, no that’s crazy. I couldn’t possible do that. If you don’t do something, an opportunity that you never thought would come up and if you said no … you will regret it one day.

“And I thought, ‘OK so let’s go for it.’ Plus learning to dance, you know every girl would love to learn to dance. It is so lovely, what a skill.”
