The dancer and TV personality will be in the capital as she undertakes one of her first ever DJ gigs.

But Wyatt, who played to Dublin crowds many times as part of the all-dancing and singing girl band fronted by Nicole Scherzinger, said she can't wait to let her hair down.

It will also be a honeymoon of sorts for the When I Grow Up hitmaker, who married model Max Rogers five weeks ago.

"I've been in Dublin a good few times with the Dolls so I have always had a good time here," she told the Herald.

"I'm going to be tired after working, but I'm bringing my husband with me and we are planning to make the most of it and check out some of the nightlife."

The 32-year-old will take to the decks tonight at the Wright Venue in Swords which has played host to A-listers in the past, including Rihanna, 50 Cent and Usher.

"It will be my first time to DJ for an Irish audience so there are some nerves, but I'm looking forward to showing them what I can do," said Wyatt.

She also said she is keen on coming back to Ireland in the future if her fledgling DJ-ing career takes off.

"I'm really passionate about it and I have lots of DJ gigs as well as a video coming out so it's pretty exciting," she said.

INSPIRATION

"It was nice to be able to put a lot of thought into my material and come up with my own ideas, so I'm really looking forward to seeing what the Dublin audience think."

The blonde bombshell won't get to spend too much time in Ireland this time around, but when she is back in town she has her eyes on a special collaboration.

"I think Damien Dempsey is an inspiration and I love his music so I would love to meet up with him," she said.

"I can teach him a few dance steps!"

The American singer, dancer, choreographer and television personality was a member of world-famous group The Pussycat Dolls from 2003 until 2010.

The girls enjoyed massive success with singles including When I Grow Up, Whatcha Think About That and Hush Hush.
