    Nicky Is Living The Dream

    It was yesterday that we found out Nicky will be presenting the Irish version of “Dancing With The Stars”, alongside Amanda Byram. The countdown has started and we can’t wait until the big premiere on January 8th at 6:30pm on RTÉ One! Nicky talked to the Irish Mirror about bringing the show to Ireland:

    “We’re an island of five million people, we’re never going to have the budgets or be able to recreate what the UK have – nor are we going to try. It will still look a million dollars when we get out there and give it our best.”

    As you know, this is not the first show Nicky’s presented on TV, but it is definitely different from his previous work.

    “I’m delighted I’m presenting a show where I don’t have a mathematical equation to explain,” Nicky said. “Finally, it’s a format that’s proven around the world but it’s [still] not an easy job. I loved The Hit, but it took a bit of explaining. The Million Euro Challenge was great for me to do on shiny floor and I enjoyed it. But again it was difficult to explain and just didn’t connect. But thankfully that’s not the case with the show.”

    He then shared with The Irish Sun that many celebrities in Ireland wanted the job, and rightfully so; Strictly Come Dancing is a huge hit in the U.K.

    “Half of Ireland went for this gig, I think everybody wanted it. We all knew it had to be a double act but it could have been two women, which ruled me out, two men, which would meant Amanda not doing it, or they might have needed a Bruce Forsyth type, but thankfully they went for me instead.”

    We are not surprised Nicky is going to be presenting “Dancing With The Stars”, because we know that he’s prefect for it. Plus, he’s had experience with Strictly as a contestant before, giving him the chance to connect with all the ones competing for the glitter ball:

    “I remember the Westlife years, we would perform on Strictly as a band and Georgina would say to me, ‘You would be great on that if you had the time to do it.’ So as soon as Westlife decided we were going to call it a day, it’s the only reality show I would’ve done as a contestant. Hosting is a different story but certainly as a contestant it’s the only one. You learn a talent, you’re being judged, you can’t cheat it, you get out of it what you put into it.” he told

    But did you know that Nicky had been eyeing Bruce Forsyth (presenter of Strictly Come Dancing) job for at least 4 years? It was when he participated on Strictly that he realised how much he wanted to host a series like Dancing With The Stars.

    “I’ve always wanted to be the Bruce [Forsyth], the Tess [Daly], always,” he said. “While I was there [on Strictly], I would have been looking at Tess and Bruce and gone, ‘You know what, maybe just maybe this one day.’ I think when I came home in 2013 I might have even enquired with people would this every come to Ireland and could it ever come to Ireland. It’s such a big show that needs such a big budget that you can’t do it half arsed it needs to be all bells and whistles, and they’ve gone for it. They’ve gone for me and Amanda which is in my opinion amazing.”

    Presenting has always been in Nicky’s bones and he’s great at it! He has a very natural way of connecting with the audience and bringing so much energy to the room. Even during his Westlife days, whenever he was on stage you could tell he was in his element interacting with the fans and getting them to cheer.

    “If I watch the X Factor, I want to be Dermot O’Leary. If I watch American Idol, I want to be Ryan Seacrest. Ryan Seacrest and Dermot O’Leary were always the people – even as a kid Gay Byrne – they’re the people that I looked up to and thought ‘I could do that job.’”

    “With Strictly, having been in Westlife and on that stage, I always felt and enjoyed that side of it. I enjoyed the performance side of it more than anything else.”

    And speaking of performing, what does this new project mean for his music career? Nicky released his debut album “Sunlight” back in May and it’s fantastic! But it seems like new songs aren’t currently in the horizon.

    “It’s parked at the moment,” adding “I’ve nothing planned at the moment, unless down the road we can look at another solo album, or a Westlife reunion if that raises it’s head – but there’s no plans of that either.”

    All I know is that I speak for all the fans when I say that we’re all unbelievably proud of Nicky. Everything he wants to do, he manages to get it. It just shows how dedicated, persistent and driven he is! Here’s to this brand new Dancing With The Stars chapter! 🙂
