As you know, Nicky is supporting the #SHOWSOMEHEART campaign by Irish Heart, and it consists of buying a temporary tattoo (read more about it here). So joining Nicky and Jenny was Graphic Designer, Annie Atkins, to chat about designing that very special heart tattoo!
Last but not least, Alice Chau, also talked to both of them about this year’s Dublin Chinese New Year Festival, which starts on the 16th February.
Is it just me or does Dancing With The Stars keep getting better and better? So hard to pick a favourite couple when everyone’s so good and charismatic. Wait ’till next Sunday when it’s Switch-up week… Wonder who will be paired up with who! Watch last night’s show on the RTÉ Player now:
The cutest moment of the show was when Nicky gave Kai Widdrington an Emoji artwork from his daughter, Gia, and said she called him her prince. Too cute!

One of everyone’s favourite moments on Dancing With The Stars is Movie Night! Hollywood magic was spread as everyone danced and played different iconic characters from some of the most famous movies of all time. Watch it back on the RTÉ Player now:

The day had to come for one of the contestants on this year’s Dancing With The Stars to go home… But that wasn’t until after all the celebrities danced on the special night and shined individually. Nicky looked stunning with his Gagliardi suit from Arnotts. Watch it back on the RTÉ Player now:
Thank you to Amanda & Arnotts for sharing these backstage photos, and RTÉ for this beautiful shot of Nicky & Amanda onstage.
But that’s not all we got to see from Behind The Scenes this week! Jake Carter made all Westlife fans swoon when he posted a video of Nicky teaching Kai, Ryan and Marty the signature pose for “Flying Without Wings”! I have a feeling we’ll get to see more of it on Thursday at 9:30PM on RTÉ2, during Can’t Stop Dancing. 😉
“I count my lucky stars every day, especially at the moment with the radio going so well and this show going so well. I had a couple of shows that didn’t take off. I needed this. I was delighted to get the chance and I really hope people are enjoying the show. I like to bring my own personality to it but at the end of the day it’s about the dancers.”
Having experienced what the contestants are going through, Nicky remembered what it was like to take part in Strictly Come Dancing back in 2012.
“You can’t even describe the nerves.The rehearsals is one thing but then when you get out there, your mouth dries up. I remember when I did Strictly, you just want to get through the dance. At that point you don’t even care what the judges say. You don’t want to let your partner down and as cliche as that sounds, it’s true.”
And speaking of competitions, Nicky didn’t rule out representing his country at Eurovision again someday, saying:
“It was an amazing experience and it is the biggest singing entertainment show in the world. I’ve no regrets, absolutely none. It was a decent performance but we just didn’t get it over the line. But never say never. It’s all about the right moment and the right song, but certainly in the next couple of years.”
