Lisa Fitzpatrick has insisted she could never do RTE's Dancing With The Stars - as her saucy dance moves would be inappropriate for the show.

The TV stylist, who regularly appears on Xpose and Ireland AM, even said the show would probably have to be aired after midnight if she was one of the contestants.

The upcoming series has been the talk of showbiz circles since RTE announced the Irish version of Strictly Come Dancing would air in January.

"I am more if a hip-hop dancer than waltzing and ballroom. I'm more Pussycat Dolls when I dance," she told the Diary.

"I like to raunchy dance. I've been known to do Beyonce and Rihanna. I go down to The George and I do my booty-shaking."

Although she would love getting dolled up for the dancing show, Lisa reckons her moves are best kept off camera.

"They probably would have to air it after midnight. I would like the glitz and glam and all of that but I would prefer a hip-hop competition or something. I'm more of a tomboy," she said.

The Dubliner struggled with her weight for several years in the past but has learned to get it under control with regular visits to the gym and being strict on herself during the week.

"I go to crossfit twice, three times a week and I work out with a personal trainer. If I didn't drive, I would be so tempted to have booze when I'm out," she said.

"I just don't because I'll have plenty at the weekend to make up for it. That's what I do - I'm strict on myself midweek and then off the rails on the weekend."

The blonde also keeps herself busy with style workshops that members of the public can attend.

"I'm doing an event in Arnotts soon," she said.
