Chaz Bono promises DWTS catsuit

Chaz Bono has joked he's wearing a "cut-out rhinestone catsuit" in week one of Dancing with the Stars.

The star is appearing on the hit television show with partner Lacey Schwimmer. Chaz has come under a lot of scrutiny for his casting because of his gender transition from female to male, which was legally recognised last year.

Chaz and Lacey have laughed off the controversy and have teased about what they will be donning for their elaborate routines on the show.

"We're going to do catsuits in week one," Lacey laughed in an interview with ET! Online, before Chaz added, "Matching. With rhinestones and cut-outs. And headdresses right?"

The 42-year-old is said to have struggled with his weight for many years but is using his appearance on the hit television show to get into shape.

Chaz, who is the son of pop diva Cher, has shed some pounds since joining the cast. The star's body is already in a lot of pain from the rigorous rehearsals.

"The body hurts. A lot," he revealed, before Lacey added, "Yeah, he has double knee braces, he has gel insoles for his feet, but he's lost like 7lbs."

"You know, it's a really good side project from doing this show," Chaz added.

Dancing with the Stars returns to ABC on Monday September 19.
