Johnny Ward and pro-dancer, Emily Barker performed three amazing dance routines as they reached the Dancing with the Stars final.

The pair exclusively opened up about their experience on the show to Goss.ie.

“We’re over the moon. We couldn’t have tried harder and you look back with no regrets. Every single dance we did was always 110%. So full of energy, so difficult but it always paid off,” Johnny told us.

The actor also revealed that they “knew” they were not going to take home the glitter ball trophy, as they were in the dance-off last week.

“Like we said last week, I mean we knew we kind of didn’t really have a chance because even when we had the judges’ scores and that was taken into account, we were still in the dance-off last week.”

Speaking of the winners, Johnny joked: “You know what? There was one person who wanted to win this competition more than myself and Mairéad and Cliona combined and his name is John Nolan. I am absolutely over the moon, I think we went to planet Neptune to get votes this week from aliens and we’re delighted for him.”

“We love him as a really good friend and like, I am so happy for them,” Emily added.
