Anna Usher: Hi Tommy! You’re turning heads at the gym again – so how’s the DWTS training going?
Tom Williams: Ha! Thanks for that Anna! Yes, I’m busy preparing for the All Stars series at the moment and it’s fun but bloody exhausting. I did Series Two of DWTS in 2005 and 16 years later, things are pretty taxing on my body. My recovery time isn’t as quick, the muscle memory is slower and I’m not the 34-year-old I once was!

Anna: Where are you training?
Tom: I’m really lucky to be prepping at Mosman Dance Academy, so I’m surrounded by some incredibly gifted and talented dancers .. taking breaks and overlooking gorgeous Georges Heights and South Head has its advantages too!
Anna: Was it a big decision to return to Dancing With The Stars?
Tom: The show is fun! I’ve had good success in the past and it certainly holds that special place in my heart. It’s the classic TV concept, take the personality out of their comfort zone and let’s see if they can handle the pressure of a live performance! I love it.
Anna: Has it disrupted your day-to-day life?
Tom: Not really, I’ve had a few lane changes with job roles around property sales, but am now settled into a position with Asset Reports as a partner. The business has a range of services, but my focus is on the Quantity Surveying and 3D Virtual Tour sector of the business. What we do is provide support services to developers, agents, retail, commercial and industrial asset-based businesses. The headquarters are in Perth but I head up the NSW team.
