With almost 1 million people tuning into Dancing With The Stars Ireland at one point last week, Nicky expressed his happiness for working on one of RTÉ One’s biggest hits:
“I count my lucky stars every day, especially at the moment with the radio going so well and this show going so well. I had a couple of shows that didn’t take off. I needed this. I was delighted to get the chance and I really hope people are enjoying the show. I like to bring my own personality to it but at the end of the day it’s about the dancers.”
Having experienced what the contestants are going through, Nicky remembered what it was like to take part in Strictly Come Dancing back in 2012.
“You can’t even describe the nerves.The rehearsals is one thing but then when you get out there, your mouth dries up. I remember when I did Strictly, you just want to get through the dance. At that point you don’t even care what the judges say. You don’t want to let your partner down and as cliche as that sounds, it’s true.”
And speaking of competitions, Nicky didn’t rule out representing his country at Eurovision again someday, saying:
“It was an amazing experience and it is the biggest singing entertainment show in the world. I’ve no regrets, absolutely none. It was a decent performance but we just didn’t get it over the line. But never say never. It’s all about the right moment and the right song, but certainly in the next couple of years.”

Nicky was featured on the latest Sunday Independent, where he talked about the importance of staying fit, how it helps him and his essential tips! I added a scan of the full article, and you can check it out below:
“Most of my life, it was all about football but in the past 10 years, I’ve moved away from football and gotten really into weights and boxing“, said Nicky. He trains with “Padraig Murphy of Evolv Fitness in Blackrock and also in my own small gym at home. I try to stick to three sessions per week – sometimes it will be just two – but sometimes I will go through phases where it’s five times per week, mixing weights and boxing.”
Nicky’s secret weapon is exercise: “Exercise makes me feel good. I don’t just work out to get fit, I plan my goals in the gym. It’s a great place to think. While I’m in the gym, I’m thinking of fighting for the heavyweight boxing title, or singing in Madison Square Gardens, or presenting the biggest TV show in the world! I have the music up loud, sports on the TV, the top comes off and off I go! Basically, when I’m in my gym at home I feel invincible.”
His Top 3 Tips:
1. Commit to training at least three times per week and decide on the days.
2. Always include squats in one of your training sessions; it’s the best thing you can do. ‘Ass to grass’ to avoid knee injury.
3. Include boxing if you can; it’s great for cardio and for building confidence. Boxercise classes are a great option.
