It may look like it's all glitz and glamour, but 'Dancing With The Stars' contestant Marty Morrissey says he endured a severe "comedown" when his time on the show ended.

The broadcaster said that living in a bubble for three months meant it was a shock to the system when he had to hang up his dancing shoes.

"There is a comedown. I did what I jokingly call the walk of shame," he said.

"I did Ryan Tubridy and Nicky Byrne, and then Daithi and Maura's show.

"Then my dance partner Ksenia and myself and her mum went for crêpes, and then I dropped them off and it was only then I kind of went, 'God it's all over now', because you're in a bubble.

"I miss the lads and I miss the craic but by Wednesday, I was kind of coming out of it again.

"I said, 'I must get back to reality' because you're in a bubble for three months, every day, but it is one of the best experiences."

He'll be reuniting with his fellow celebrities shortly, as they perform a group dance on the programme finale on March 25.
