'Only dancing I did when I was young was the shuffle to get the shift' - Dermot Bannon on his Late Late Bollywood routine

Room to Improve's Dermot Bannon is best known to RTE viewers for his architectural skills and going head to head with stubborn homeowners.
Tonight, however, he will ditch his usual dapper look for something a little more exotic.
Bannon, Newstalk presenter George Hook and Rose of Tralee Maria Walsh are all taking part in tonight's special dancing edition of 'The late Late Show'.
While Maria and the 'Hookie Monster' have a little bit of formal training under their belts, Bannon - who will perform a Bollywood dance routine to Jai Ho - is a novice to the world of piles and ball changes.
"I have never danced before," he told a group of reporters.
"Now, all of a sudden I'm wearing a kurta and mascara and jumping all over the place. The only dancing I did when I was younger was the shuffle to get the shift."
Dermot's wife is one lucky lady!
Majella O'Donnell will also take part in the charity dance-off.
Hook will perform the Charleston, Walsh the salsa and Bannon will do his Bollywood inspired routine.
Majella O'Donnell, who will perform the jive, said: "I usually do the jive with Daniel - who is a fantastic dancer - so it's taken a lot of practise."
The couple are currently working on a TV series about the best B&Bs in Ireland.
Check out Dermot's dance moves on the last The Late Late Show of the season, tonight at 9.35pm on RTE One.
