At 82, Cloris Leachman proves no one is too old to be Dancing With the Stars!

The stunning senior still has an incredibly evident sparkle in her eye, and now she wants to prove to the world she’s still got a whole lot of livelihood in her limbs too! 

Cloris Leachman is sure to attract a new audience to Dancing With The Stars, the ballroom reality show which pits celebrities up against each other in a competitive dance competition.

The octogenarian (someone in their eighties) will be the oldest contestant to compete on Dancing With the Stars, but I wouldn’t be surprised if she cha-chas some of the younger stars straight off the dance floor!

Before Cloris Leachman, the most senior competitor on Dancing With the Stars was George Hamilton, who starred on the show in 2006 at 66 years old.
