With this year's season of Dancing With The Stars NZ fast approaching, four more celebrities keen to competitively bust a move have been announced.

Comedian Laura Daniel, freestyle skier Anna Willcox and Mai FM's K'Lee have all got their eye on the glitter ball trophy for 2019.

They were announced on Thursday along with the confirmation of Newshub's own Mike McRoberts, whose dancing partner and chosen charity have also been revealed.

Here's all you need to know about the final lot of contestants for Dancing With The Stars NZ 2019:

Dance Partner: Shae Mountain
Charity: Shine

Comedy star Laura Daniel is trading jokes for jives after becoming known to Three viewers on Funny Girls, Jono & Ben and 7 Days.

She's also part of the musical comedy duo Two Hearts with Joseph Moore, with the pair having performed for audiences in Auckland, Melbourne and Edinburgh.

Laura is keen to take to the dancefloor to show off a new side of her - and she reckons she's already very good.

"Even though I've only been dancing for like a week, the Dancing with the Stars team already consider me a professional dancer," says Laura.

"Can't wait to see what celebrity they give me!"

Anna Willcox - Freestyle skier
Dance Partner: Brad Coleman
Charity: Mental Health Foundation

She's shredded slopes as an Olympic freestyle skier, but does Anna Willcox have what it takes to dominate the dance floor?

After beginning skiing with her sports-enthusiast family at the age of four, she landed on her first world cup podium in Sierra Nevada Spain in 2013 and qualified for the 2014 Sochi, Russia Winter Olympic Games ranked 7th in the world.

She also currently works as a TV sports presenter for The Crowd Goes Wild and enjoys surfing and the gym.

"Pushing my limits and living outside of my comfort zone is where I feel my most alive and confident. It's slightly addictive and sometimes it ends with a bandage or two but you can't deny that it feels awesome to push yourself," says Anna.

K'Lee - Mai FM announcer
Dancer Partner: Scott Cole
Charity: The Revolution Tour 

K'Lee was a pop star in the early 2000s whose hit cover of Mr Mister ballad 'Broken Wings' reached number two on the New Zealand chart, before she went on to become the first female Kiwi artist to achieve four top 20 singles off a debut album.

In more recent years she's been the day announcer at hip-hop and RnB station Mai FM, as well as raising four children.

"It's been a while since I've had to pull out 'K'Lee the Pop star' dance moves, but I'm up for the challenge! Life would be boring without a little cha-cha and glitter," says K'Lee.

Mike McRoberts - Newshub anchor
Dance Partner: Kristie Williams
Charity: Variety Bikes For Kids

Following in the footsteps of his Newshub Live at 6pm colleague Sam Hayes, Mike McRoberts is trading the newsdesk for the dancefloor this year.

A veteran broadcaster with over 30 years of experience, 14 in the role of 6pm anchor, the staunch Crusaders fan enjoys a good book, a splash of vino and spending time with his two children.

"Some of the best things I've done in my life have seemed at the time like insurmountable challenges; reporting from conflicts around the globe, or some of the world's biggest natural disasters. Or even running marathons and competing in multi-sport events," says Mike.

"Dancing with the Stars feels like one of those challenges - but perhaps with a slightly more glamorous wardrobe."
