Preparation for the third season of Dancing With The Stars has officially kicked off, ahead of its launch next year.
Professional dancers met at the Liffey Trust Centre in the Docklands, where they began choreographing routines for the series ahead.
Sharing a group snap, Curtis Pritchard said, “Let the games begin. It’s a new year, new season and a new competition. Who will be the winner this year?”
Last month it was confirmed that Jennifer Zamparelli would take over from Amanda Byram as host of the show.
The radio star will join Nicky Byrne when it returns in 2019.
Speaking of her new role, Jen said, “I’m absolutely thrilled to be joining the Dancing with the Stars team.
“I was lucky enough to witness the live production first hand last year when I sat in the audience supporting Bernard O’Shea and I was genuinely so impressed by the overall scale of the show.
“I can’t wait to get my glam on and start entertaining the nation on Sunday nights and who better to do it with than the fabulous Nicky Byrne.”
