Perth sports presenter and former Australian Football League player Ben Cousins will be taking part in the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.
He will be the first celebrity to join the show.
During his peak, he was regarded as one of the best mid-fielders in the league. Unfortunately, his off-field problems affected his performance and led to his sacking from West Coast.
He returned to the football league in 2009 and played 32 games for Richmond.
During an interview on Sunrise last year, he said that he was very grateful to have reached his current stage in life. However, he admitted that he regrets the journey that he took.
He said that following a simple lifestyle and assessing everything in one’s life can help you find what makes you happy
. Dancing With The Stars, which will be hosted by Sonia Kruger and Dr. Chris Brown, is set to air on Channel 7 and 7 Plus.
