The 69-year-old said: “I’m afraid I’ve two left feet so no [I wouldn’t do it]. But I enjoy watching it.”

“I hope that it comes back soon because it’s a wonderfully entertaining show,” she added.

“It’s quite extraordinary how good people are, especially those who don’t have a background in dance. It’s amazing.”


A source told the Irish Sun last month: “Dancing With The Stars is a ready-made hit which just needs to be plugged.”

“RTE considered a number of alternative shows but they all faced the same Covid risks.”

“Hopefully by next January, there’ll be little Covid around and DWTS will run as normal,” the insider added.
