Hosts For Irish DWTS Announced
Irish broadcaster RTÉ has announced the presenters for the Republic's version of Dancing With The Stars - Nicky Byrne and Amanda Byram.
Both have Strictly connections. Nicky made it to Week 10 with Karen Clifton in 2012. Amanda, who is probably best known to UK viewers for co-hosting Total Wipeout for BBC One, hosted the Strictly live tour for selected performances in 2012.
There will also be a spin-off show called Can't Stop Dancing, hosted by Bláthnaid Treacy.
The series will start on Sunday 8th January. Celebrities and pro dancers are still to be announced, but rumoured names include former newsreader Anne Doyle and Big Brother UK runner-up Hughie Maughan. Former Strictly pro Robin Windsor was reportedly in talks to be a pro dancer on the show.
