Mrs Brown’s Boys star set RTÉ’s Dancing With The Stars

The actress has reportedly been paired with Ryan McShane


Mrs Brown’s Boys star ­Eilish O’Carroll is set to star in the upcoming series of RTÉ’s Dancing With The Stars.

According to The Irish Sun, the actress, who plays Winnie in the popular sitcom, has been paired with pro-dancer Ryan McShane.

A show insider revealed: “Ryan made it through to the semi-finals of Dancing With The Stars last season with Erin McGregor but now is sure he can win the show with Eilish.”

Just last week, Ryan dropped a hint that he would have an older dance partner this year.

He said: “I’ve had two partners that have been pretty much similar ability, now I wouldn’t mind challenging myself. I’d have to be creative if I got someone a bit older.”

Sources have told the paper that Eilish and Ryan had their first rehearsals this week, and Brendan O’Carroll’s sister is quite the dancer.

In fact just last year, she took part in a mini-Dancing With The Stars on RTÉ’s Today Show.
