It looks like there are going to be plenty of shake-ups when it comes to the 2024 season of Dancing with the Stars.

Emily Barker and Maurizio Benenato confirmed that they would not be competing in the show next year to the dismay of fans.

And now a third professional dancer has hung up their Dancing with the Stars hat.

The show’s official Instagram announced the news, confirming that John Nolan would be leaving the show.

“After six sensational seasons, John Nolan is leaving Dancing with the Stars,” the post reads.

“As one of the show’s original professional dancers, John has brought entertainment, professionalism and talent to the floor every single week.

“Throughout his fantastic run, John partnered with celebrities such as Teresa Mannion, Deirdre O’Kane, Mary Kennedy, Gráinne Seoige and Leah O’Rourke.

“He lifted the Glitterball Trophy in 2019 when he danced with Mairéad Ronan. Thank you, John! x.”
