Dancing with The Stars Ireland is to return to our screen next year.

The show that gave us moments of telly gold including Teresa Mannion twirling about with an umbrella to It’s Raining Men, Aidan O’Mahony flexing his abs and, of course, The Dessie Swim was a rating hit for RTE.

Today, the national broadcaster confirmed a new series would air in the new year.

The Sunday night show was popular with viewers pulling in average audience ratings of 584,000.

The production team ae already rumoured to be putting together wish list of celebrities they would like to see shimmy and samba around the dance floor in 2018.

Speaking about the second series, Channel Controller Adrian Lynch said; “Dancing with the Stars is one of the big jewels in the crown of our New Season… We’re very proud to bring this spectacular show back to Irish audiences.”

Larry Bass CEO added that he was looking forward to finding ‘fleet-footed celebs to be put through their paces and light up our screens next year.'
