The UK Pleasure Boys, who boast Big Brother star Marc O'Neill as one of their dancers, got guests in fits of giggles as they showed off their skills.

Blushes aside, a number of well-known Irish faces were excited to see Channing Tatum in the follow-up to the 2012 hit movie.

Winning Streak presenter Sinead Kennedy left her husband Conor Kirwan at home and brought one of her pals instead.

"Looking at hot men for two hours is never a bad way to spend an evening," she told the Herald.

"I made Conor suffer through the first one so I brought one of the girls with me tonight,

and we're looking forward to seeing tans and six packs.

"I do fancy Matthew McConaughey an awful lot but he's not in this one so I'm a bit disappointed, but you wouldn't kick Channing Tatum out of bed for eating crisps."

The UK Pleasure Boys admitted they have missed having Marc in their show now that he's in the Big Brother house.

"He's not in our residence show at the moment so he's a big loss," said John.

"When we can we watch the replays of him on Big Brother. He'll be back with us after the show and obviously he'll be doing other things, but you will see us with him again.

"We're excited to be here in Dublin to see the new movie and perform a brand new show at a private party afterwards."

Fair City star Jenny Dixon revealed she's a fan of the franchise, saying "they're just great fun".

"I was a fan of the first one, it was lovely because there was an unexpected love story in it and lots of great dancing, I loved it," she said.

"Channing Tatum is a great actor, he's had lots of diverse roles and he's got great charisma."

Other guests at the premiere included model Louise O'Reilly, sisters Gail and Hazel Kaneswaren and Sean Munsanje.
