Alan McGrath and Colm Farrell have gone down very well with fans in Malmo.

IT’S worlds away Dana and ‘All kinds of Everything’ – but it appears Ryan Dolan’s topless backing dancers are the star attraction in Malmo.

Ryan Dolan revealed to the Irish Independent that his local priest gave him a blessed medal which he wore inside his stage outfit – however it may be his backing dancers which gave him the magic touch.

Alan McGrath and Colm Farrell have brought traditional celtic Ireland right into the 21st century – their bodies are tattooed with celtic spirals while they play bodran drums on stage.

The two dancers have gone down very well with fans in Malmo – they’re stopped almost as often as Ryan for photographs.

The act has won praise from those in Malmo as the stage show seamlessly combines traditional Irish influences with a modern dance track.

Meanwhile Ryan Dolan has remained tight lipped on whether he will reveal his six pack on Twitter.

The singer posted a topless picture weeks before the competition when he said he was beginning work on building up his muscle.

He’s been repeatedly asked in press conferences to display the results, however the shy Tyrone man is yet to oblige his legions of Twitter followers.

The Irish team enjoy another day off today before they begin dress rehearsals for the grand final tomorrow afternoon.
