EVERYTHING you need to know about Dancing with the Stars Ireland series 2

Dancing with the Stars Ireland is returning for another series, following its successful debut earlier this year.

The brand new series sees a fresh batch of celebrities braving the dance floor in a bid to entertain the nation every weekend.

Amanda Byram and Nicky Byrne will be back again to present the main show, with Bláthnaid Treacy also back to present spin off show ‘Can’t Stop Dancing’ every Thursday evenings.

Brian Redmond, Loraine Barry and Julian Benson return to the judges’ desk to oversee the celebrities dancing, and they’re going to have to work hard for that all-important 10 score.

Each week the celebrities will take on a new routine with their professional partners, from the Paso Doble to the Waltz.

There will be NO eliminations for the first two weeks of the series. But after that, it’s up to the public to vote and keep their favourite duo in.

The brand new series launches on Sunday, January 7 – and ends with the finale on Sunday, March 25 on RTÉ One.
