It was announced a few months back that RTÉ is going to bring an irish version of Strictly Come Dancing to Ireland, calling it like the American show: “Dancing With The Stars”.
Today, Nicky revealed to Ryan Tubridy on RTÉ Radio 1’s The Ryan Tubridy Show that he will be hosting the most-anticipated series alongside Amanda Byram! With his experience on Strictly back in 2012 and his great presenting skills that make him connect with the audience immediately, there’s really no one better for the job! Well deserved and congratulations!
“This is my Late Late Show Ryan, this is the show I love, to be a part of it is very exciting. The celebrities will go through highs, lows, you name it. It’s gonna be fun, it’s like going to the Oscars every Sunday night, it’s glitz and glamour, black tie.”
Listen back to his announcement and full interview:
Nicky also talked to his radio show co-host, Jenny Greene, this morning, saying that he and Amanda just had their Promotional Photoshoot.
Dancing With The Stars will premiere on January 8th at 6:30pm on RTÉ One with a bumper 90-minute episode and will be airing until March 26th.
