The competition is getting fierce as we enter the final few weeks of Dancing with the Stars, and last night we said goodbye to another contestant. Pro-cyclist Nicolas Roche and his partner, Karen Byrne were the latest to be eliminated from the competition.

Last week the pair were unable to perform after Nicolas tested positive for Covid-19 and on Sunday he got to return to the dance-floor one last time. The theme for this weeks’s show was ‘Around the World’ and saw the pair dance a floaty foxtrot to Sinatra’s ‘I Love Paris’ which scored them a 21 from the judges.

Judge Brian shared; “You are improving so much across your top line and captured the character of what is an extremely difficult technical dance.”

Commenting on their performance Head Judge, Loraine said; “Foxtrot is the gentleman’s dance and for me that’s what makes you look so good” and Arthur added; “When I heard you were doing the foxtrot, I thought ‘this is right up his alley’, and I was right.”

Ultimately, this wasn’t enough to keep them out of the bottom two, where they found themselves along with Ellen Keane, before the judges chose to send Nicolas and Karen home.

Speaking about his experience on the show he said; “It has been an incredible journey – when I was told about the show, I straight away agreed and I have no regrets, it has been a life-chancing experience.”
