A number of well known Irish faces will be taking to the dance floor next year to showcase their skills on Dancing with the stars.
Ever since it was announced that the hit American show is coming to Ireland rumours have been flying around about which Irish celebrities will be taking part.
Last month it was announced that Amanda Bryam will be presenting the show, and now we know the names of some of the contestants who are apparently taking part.
Some of the names who are rumoured to be taking part include; Big Brother star Hughie Maughan, comedian Des Bishop, GAA player Aidan O’Mahony, top model Thalia Heffernan and weather reporter Teresa Mannion.
The team of dancing novices have apparently already met up for lunch and are currently rehearsing for the show with their designated partners.
“All the stars and their dancers met up and had a sort of get-together lunch in town last week. They all got on really well and they are all rehearsing around the clock with their partners,” a source told the Irish Daily Mail.
“There is a really good mix and we know that the GAA pulling power of Aidan O’Mahony will be a bit hit – as will hopefully Des Bishop who has a big national following.
“The full line-up will be released to the public next week and there could be an appearance on a weekend chat show. That’s all I can say.”
We can’t wait to find out the full line-up!
