Week 1 of Dancing With The Stars Ireland is now over and I have to congratulate the show’s team for doing such a phenomenal job! Nicky was an natural as the show’s host, interacting and having a ball with the contestants, judges and of course, the audience. The set was beautiful and the energy was contagious! I cannot wait to see what else is in store next week, where the girls will take on the dance floor. If you missed the excitement, or want to relive it again, you can watch it below or with the RTÉ Player app. Enjoy!

2016 was a phenomenal year for all of us Nicky fans. What with the release of his debut solo album ‘Sunlight’, Eurovision, The Nicky Byrne Show, Soccer Aid… I could go on and on. It was very special for Nicky and it was a pleasure to follow and support him on another incredible chapter in his life.
I decided to make this video to celebrate everything that happened and share it with all you guys. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I liked putting it together. 🙂 What was your favourite moment of 2016?
