EVERYONE’S FAVOURITE GAA commentator Marty Morrissey will be taking to the dancefloor on the second season of Dancing With The Stars, it was revealed tonight.

(His rig out! The bedazzled pocket. We’re unable.)

Marty claims he doesn’t know how to dance, but we’re sure he’s just being modest:

It’s an opportunity of a lifetime to do something way outside my comfort zone, so here goes! I don’t really know how to dance, so to have the opportunity to learn is fantastic, and to be part of this great team is just super.

He’ll be the Des Cahill of the 2018 show, no doubt.

If Erin’s name seems familiar, it’s because she’s the sister of a certain Conor McGregor.

Singer Jake Carter

And if Jake’s name seems familiar, it’s because the country musician has followed in his older brother Nathan Carter’s footsteps. That’s some jacket he has there.

Cork camogie captain Anna Geary

Fun fact: Along with being an All-Ireland winner, Anna is a former Rose of Tralee. Accomplished!

He has a bronze medal from the 2012 Olympics, but will Rob’s fast feet help him on the dancefloor?

Wearing fancy frocks isn’t new to Aoife, but dancing in them? We’ll see.

There they all are now. Dancing With The Stars will kick off on Sunday, January 7, running for 12 whole weeks. We can’t wait.
