A host of celebrities are set to take to the stage for RTE’s first ever Dancing With The Stars.
It was previously revealed that Amanda Byram will host the show and RTE’s Blathnaid Treacy will take the reins of the Friday spin-off show.
Some of the stars rumoured to take part include top model Thalia Heffernan, comedian Des Bishop and RTE journalist known for her wild weather report, Teresa Mannion.

Also joining them are Big Brother star Hughie Maughan and GAA player Aidan O’Mahony.
“All the stars and their dancers met up and had a sort of get-together lunch in town last week. They all got on really well and they are all rehearsing around the clock with their partners,” a source told the Irish Daily Mail.
“There is a really good mix and we know that the GAA pulling power of Aidan O’Mahony will be a bit hit – as will hopefully Des Bishop who has a big national following.
“The full line-up will be released to the public next week and there could be an appearance on a weekend chat show. That’s all I can say.”
