RTE’s Marty Morrissey and Ksenia Zsikhotska during the opening show of RTE’s Dancing with the Stars.
l For the next 12 weeks, The Late Late Show/ Ray D’Arcy Show guest list will rotate between the contestants of DWTS, the cast of Striking Out, the judges of DWTS, the cast of Striking Out, the dancers on DWTS, and John Creedon. On Saturday night we already had judges Loraine Barry and Brian Redmond 'sharing their thoughts with Ray about the show this season'.
l Louis Walsh will continue to point out the lack of celebrities in the line up. “They are not even celebrities in their own homes,” he said last year. Louis’ opinions are unbiased and definitely have nothing to do with the fact that he has a rival show Ireland’s Got Talent airing on TV3.
l There will be a movie-themed night and Marty Morrissey will go as a Porg from Star Wars.
l Erin McGregor’s time on the show will be short but eventful. She will leave early because she is from Dublin and Dubliners don’t vote.
l Before she leaves Conor McGregor and his baby CJ will arrive at Ardmore flanked by security and wearing matching shiny Spanish trousers.
l Anna Geary will work a camogie into a dance routine. In much the same way that Teresa Mannion was swanning about with an umbrella.
l All of the contestants will talk far too earnestly about ‘the journey’ they have all been part of. And how much they love their fellow contestants.
l The following Irish celebrities will casually mention to the press that they would be more than willing to take part in the 2019 show; Rory Cowan, Lorraine Keane, and any Irish influencer you can think of.
