Nicky was a guest on today’s RTÉ’s Today Show, where he talked about RTÉ’s new hit show, Dancing With The Stars Ireland. Here you can also see a quick recap of what happened during last night’s premiere and how Nicky can relate to what the contestants are going through, having participated in the U.K. original version of the series, Strictly Come Dancing.
I uploaded the video on YouTube, for all those who couldn’t watch it live. Enjoy!
More congratulations are in order for the cast and crew of Dancing With The Stars Ireland because the show was a massive hit with viewers, averaging an audience of 640,000 with over 1.2 million tuning in over the course of the show! This makes the series a dominating force on Irish TV.
“It’s great to see Dancing with the Stars get off to such a strong start. We wanted to bring some glamour and sparkle to Sunday nights on RTÉ One and create fun family appointment-to-view television. Well done to Shinawil and all our celebs for their hard work and we’re looking forward to seeing how the drama unfolds on the dance floor over the next 11 weeks,” channel controller for RTE One and RTE2 Adrian Lynch said.
Amazing Start ! Well done to all the hard working team making the magic happen! Can't wait for next week ? https://t.co/86EM7Abv4E
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!

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.
