Nicky Byrne and Amanda Byram were announced as hosts last week, and the ShinaAwil-produced show is set to air on RTÉ One for 12 weeks starting on Sunday the 8th of January at 6.30pm.

Each celebrity will be paired with a professional dancing partner and will be given a new dance to master each week.


They’ll then be scored by “an expert panel of judges and the viewing public at home”.

Bláthnaid Treacy is set to present the sister show on Friday nights, Can’t Stop Dancing.
