Dancing with the Stars has been slowly but surely revealing the 2023 line-up.

And we are bursting with glee to tell you who the latest contestant is.

Derry native Damian McGinty revealed that he is the seventh celebrity announced for series six of Dancing with the Stars.

The singer and actor hit the global stage when he joined the cast of Glee back in 2011.

Damian actually won the American reality TV show, The Glee Project, having been selected from 40,000 people to take part in the series. His talent and personality saw him land the role of Rory Flanagan in the popular television series Glee, which he played for three years.

He went on to star with his Glee co-star Heather Morris, who played Brittany on the show, in the family movie Santa Fake.

However, he’s no stranger to the stage as he has been performing with Celtic Thunder since he was 14.

Although he’ll always be a Derry boy at heart, he now calls Nashville his home.

Speaking about joining the show, Damian said: “Dancing with the Stars is a major challenge for me, one I am really excited and also very nervous about. Dancing has never been a strong point of mine, quite the opposite, but I’m eager to get to work. It feels like a great time to simply go out there and enjoy the experience, and I can’t wait to get started.”

Damien will be joining Shane Byrne, Dr Marie Cassidy, Suzanne Jackson, Panti Bliss, Brooke Scullion and Paul Brogan on the dancefloor.

We can’t wait to see who comes next!
