Dancing With The Stars Ireland pro dancer Curtis Pritchard was involved in a incident on St Stephen’s day, leaving him with injuries that will see him unable to compete in this year’s show.

The star, who was on a night out with his brother AJ, who is a pro dancer on BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing, was also injured in the attack.

“AJ and Curtis were assaulted in an unprovoked attack. Curtis is to undergo an emergency operation to correct damage to his knee. AJ received bruising to his face, arms, body and legs.” a spokesperson told The Sun.

RTE released a statement about the incident earlier today, saying a replacement for Curtis is being for the new series of the show, which begins in the new year.
