Model Alannah Beirne has been working hard to make up for lost time and has been rehearsing 12 hours a day to catch up with her fellow celebrities on 'Dancing With The Stars'.

The Kildare woman (23) joined the series late after replacing model Aoife Walsh, who was forced to drop out after fracturing her toe.

"The first couple of days afterwards, my legs, all my muscles were so sore. I couldn't walk. I have a couple of blisters on my toes," Alannah (pictured right) said. "My legs were giving up at the end of the evening dancing, so we were like, 'right, we will finish up'."

Although all the celebrities have kept quiet on who their dance partner is, Alannah was spotted leaving the rehearsal studio with Vitali Kozmin, who danced with Aoibhín Garrihy last year.
