Reality TV Show Dance Moms Is Coming To Australia
There are some truly bats*** reality TV shows on the telly at the moment but few reach into the levels of intensity on offer in Dance Moms.
If you're already a fan of the hit US series, then you'll be absolutely bloody delighted to know that the show is being brought to Australia.
The US iteration is based on dance instructor Abbie Lee Miller, plus her army of child proteges and their usually bickering mums.
However, instead of Miller leading the charge, the Aussie version will see 2000 Sydney Olympics sensation Nikki Webster being placed in the spotlight. The 'Strawberry Kisses' singer uploaded a video to social media asking for dancers to complete an application and send it on in.
She told Sunrise: "I've been involved in young dancers' careers in this country for over ten years.

"We have amazing dancers and I want to give them a platform to showcase that to the world - what better show to do this than Dance Moms?"
"Australians are known for being laid back and chilled - however when you add the pressure of TV, the competitiveness and then throw me in the mix, it's going to make a really interesting show!
"These parents are so driven and passionate about their kids - they live and breathe it."
"Whether that's the child saying, 'This is what I want to do, mum, you've got to support me,' or it's the parent who's thinking, 'This is the best for the child,' we're going to see a lot of different dynamics."
In other words, Nikki reckons there will be drama.
The original show has attracted controversy in the past for the way Abbie and the other mums interact, with many people criticising their behaviour in front of such young, impressionable children.
But it has certainly managed to launch several successful careers, such as those of Jojo Siwa and Maddie Ziegler.
Will we see the same type of hype or will it be terrible? Only time will tell.
