Suzy Cato and Naz Khanjani are the latest celebrities to join the cast of Dancing With the Stars.

The pair were today confirmed to join Three's reality show, returning to television later this month.


"I'm in this for the challenge, the excitement, the music, the dancing, the dresses and my charity," Cato, a former children's TV presenter, told Newshub.

Khanjani was the star of The Bachelor NZ's second season, making a name for herself for her outspoken opinions.

She lost out narrowly to Jordan Mauger's heart when he chose Fleur Verhoeven in the finale.

"I've always watched Dancing With The Stars and it just looks like so much fun," Naz told Newshub.

"It's an opportunity for the public to see the real me as I am. I love a challenge and knowing we are dancing for charity makes it even more special."
