Singer Niall Breslin has put to bed suggestions that he’ll be appearing on RTE’s new dance show Dancing With the Stars.

The Blizzards frontman and former coach of Voice of Ireland joked that RTE didn't have the adequate insurance to allow him dance in public.

Earlier this week, after The Voice of Ireland was axed by RTE, Bressie texted his friend and TV presenter Eoghan McDermott to say “No Voice, I need a job”.

When McDermott suggested he should go on RTE’s new show Dancing With the Stars, Bressie joked that he’d like a “cushy contract”.

McDermott himself has indicated that he’d like to appear on the show.

But today, Bressie wittily moved to clarify his position.

“Those asking will I be appearing on new RTE dancing show I am afraid Rte can't get the Adequate insurance to allow me dance in public.”

McDermott and Bressie became pals while working on The Voice of Ireland, and the young RTE presenter was backstage supporting The Blizzards at Indiependance Festival on the August bank holiday weekend.
