Fans were delighted to see Curtis Pritchard’s surprise appearance on Dancing with the Stars tonight – as he prepares for his comeback.
The professional dancer had to pull out of the competition less than two weeks before it kicked off, when he suffered injuries from a nightclub attack over the Christmas.
The 22-year-old was partnered with former Miss Ireland, Holly Carpenter, and while the social media star was unfortunately voted out of the competition last week, Curtis will be making his debut of the season in the pro-dancers’ group performance next week.
Fans were ecstatic over Curtis’ surprise appearance on the show this week, as he announced the voting lines were open alongside Nicky Byrne.
