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’sThe 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.
The 5th Annual NMH Fashion Show helping Holles Street took place over a week ago, and as you know, Nicky hosted the event. UTV’sThe Pulse was there, and they interviewed him. Special thank you to Susie for sending us the clip, since many fans couldn’t watch from the official website.
As you know, Nicky and Jenny were interviewed on RTÉ’s Today Show with Maura and Daithi. They talked about Jenny’s upcoming concert with the 2fm Orchestra at the 3Arena, and this year’s 2fm Xmas Ball in aid of ISPCC, taking place on December 3rd. To finish, they played a bit of a reinvention of the famous Mr. and Mrs. Game show! Gotta love these two.
