Donegal crooner, Daniel O’Donnell, is getting to grips with his Strictly dance rehearsals after posting a snap of him and fellow competitors Peter Andre and Iwan Thomas to his Facebook.
BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing is back for an impressive new series as Daniel will be setting your screens alight with his twinkle toes.
Daniel will be hoping to impress head judge Len Goodman, flamboyant Bruno Tonioli, prima ballerina Darcey Bussell and acid tongued Craig Revel Horwood.
Daniel is one of 15 celebrities set to compete for the Strictly glitter trophy this year, which will be won just before Christmas.
Other celebrities hoping to shimmy for viewer votes include; former Ready Steady Cook chef Ainsley Harriott and London-born Aussie singer Andre.
“I love the show and it’s going to be a great challenge for me,” Daniel said. “I want to go as far in the competition as I’m good enough to go and if that’s all the way then I will be thrilled!
“I could have the whole of Ireland come down and support me! But my wife, friends and family will be there every week to cheer me on.”
Tess Daly and Claudia Winkleman will announce who Daniel, and his competitors, are paired with for the new series this Saturday at 7.15pm on BBC1.
