Get ready to rumba!

Seven has released a first look at this year’s Dancing With The Stars, which will see Dr Chris Brown step into a co-hosting role beside Sonia Kruger for the very first time.

The sneak-peek promo, which aired during Sunday night’s Farmer Wants A Wife, sees the esteemed TV vet — who jumped ship from Ten to rival network Seven last year — behind the wheel of a mirror-ball covered van, literally knocking down celebrities destined for the dancefloor in an attempt to round them up for the competition.

With Kruger in the passenger seat, the pair have this year’s stars in their crosshairs — and no one is safe!
