2FM entertainment presenter Lottie Ryan and Fair City star Ryan Andrews have been announced for this year’s Dancing With The Stars.

The pair confirmed their participation on The Ryan Tubridy Show on RTÉ Radio 1 this morning.

“You get a phone call and they feel you out,” Lottie revealed about the process.

“It’s a process. I wanted to be a part of it for a long time, since this show started…Iv’e fallen in love with it,” Lottie revealed.

“It looks like so much fun, its such a huge show…when I found out that I had gotten it I lost my mind.”

Ryan described the show as a “whole different ball game,” to his acting work in both pantos and TV.

Olympic gold medalist Michael Carruth was leaked this morning as the second star to take part in RTE’s Dancing With the Stars.

The Olympian will swap his boxing gloves for sequins and tap dancing shoes as he prepares to compete in the popular competition.

Michael’s participation was leaked this morning by a number of publications, and mentioned by Ryan Tubridy on his show.
