Paul Brogan back to his nine to five after DWTS elimination


It definitely came as a shock to viewers when Paul Brogan waved goodbye to Dancing with the Stars on Sunday night.

Despite topping the leaderboard last week, he failed to impress the judges and the viewers at home with his tango this week. However, he has no hard feelings about being eliminated after just five weeks on the show.

“It’s all a bit of craic. Everyone has to go home eventually,” he confesses as he chats after the elimination.

In fact, he’s, in a way, relieved. Since signing up for the show, he has been juggling the intense training with his nine-to-five job. Despite being best known for his work on the pitch in his Dublin jersey, he has been working as an engineer for the ESB.

“I’ll miss the live show. But between this and work, it was a lot of time. I had to train very late which probably didn’t help us,” he explains.

During his time on the show, his days would look something like this: “I would get up go to work then come straight here and then go back to work.”

He jokes that his time on the show has really elevated his status especially when he was doing house calls at his day job.

When asked if people were excited to see him drop by he confesses: “The last few weeks they have been.”

“It’s mad for an amateur sport,” he says of the support he received during his time as a Dublin footballer, “we’re just regular, normal people.”

But it may be the show that catapulted him to superstardom as he jokes: “The aul ones love the show.”

Dancing with the Stars continues on RTÉ One on Sunday at 6:30pm
